Subject FB performance on Win32 and Linux
Author k_smith_000
According to Firebird Survey 2005 more than 60% percent of deployed FB
servers were running on Windows. I'm just curious why so many
developers chosen Windows, while there is free and open source linux
(which is recommended for DB servers by Oracle and IBM).

Personally I'm using Firebird with Linux, but unfortunately I don't
have any experience with these database on Linux. The only thing I
know is that while SuperServer runs smoothly on Windows, it's
recommended to use Classis architecture on Linux.

Have you carried out any Firebird performance test on linux and windows?
I'm especially interested in test carried on big databases (~4GB) on
multiprocessor machines.
