Interesting. Results I have seen using a 16 CPU SGI Altex(?) showed
an almost linear rise for postgres while mysql topped off after about
4 threads. Sorry, don't have the URL at hand (I probably still have
it in my work mail).
Now this may well have been a version before 5.0.33. I'm not sure
what OS was used either, I suppose it was either Irix or Linux.
Now I am curious whether the same performance drop on Linux would
occur with a postgres benchmark. It probably will, but if not it
seems like there's a problem in the way that mysql and linux interact.
