Ubuntu vs. Debian vs. openSUSE On The POWER9 Raptor Talos II

Phoronix - 1. Únor 2019 - 16:17
While we frequently compare the performance of many x86_64 Linux distributions, we haven't done one under IBM POWER9 since getting our hands on the Raptor Computing Systems' Talos II back in November. It's been very interesting to benchmark this libre hardware that's high performance with having 44 cores / 176 threads at 3.80GHz.

Linux Kernel Getting New Option So SSBD Isn't Over-Protective - Helping Performance

Phoronix - 31. Leden 2019 - 13:15
For the Linux kernel's Speculative Store Bypass Disable (SSBD) handling for Spectre Variant 4 protection is support for processes opting into force disabling of speculation via a prctl() interface. Currently when speculation is disabled, that is carried through to new processes started via the execve() system call. But a new bit will allow clearing that state when a new program is started by a process otherwise relying upon PR_SPEC_DISABLE, in what will help the performance in such cases...
