Phoronix has published the results of a long series of kernel benchmarks
, generally concluding that 2.6.29 is faster than its predecessors. "When it came to the SQLite performance, a serious performance regression began with the Linux 2.6.26 kernel and ended with the Linux 2.6.29 release. Normally it required 27~28 seconds to perform 12,500 database insertions using SQLite, but with the Linux 2.6.26 through 2.6.28 kernel releases it took 109 seconds! Fortunately, this regression is now fixed.
" There's no sense for why
things might have changed, though.
