    SubjectGreat News!! Was: [RFT] 2.2.8_andrea1 wake-one
    Hi all, (especially Andrea)
    I've been doing some more SPECWeb96 tests, and with Andrea's
    patch to 2.2.8 (ftp://e-mind.com/pub/andrea/kernel/2.2.8_andrea1.bz)

    **On identical hardware, I get web-performance nearly identical to Tru64!**

    Previously, Linux response times had been 100ms while tru64 had been ~4ms.

    However, with this patch applied, linux reponse times almost mirror Tru64.

    Tru64 ~4ms
    2.2.5 ~100ms
    2.2.8 ~9ms
    2.2.8_a ~4ms

    I realize that 2.3.1 has a more efficient wakeone patch applied, and haven't
    yet had a chance to try it. (Maybe tonight)

    Time spent in schedule has decreased, as shown by this Iprobe data:

    The number of SPECWeb96 MaxOps per second have jumped has well.

    **Please, put the wakeone patch into the 2.2.X kernel if it isn't already. **
