Hey Dan,

OffMyServer hasn't gotten anything formal up yet, but we will. This  
was fairly generic testing on identical boxes with
vanilla installations (no tuning). Then, bonnie, iozone, and dd were  
run on FreeBSD vs. Linux. We have a plan to begin saving all this  
testing data that we do in production and make an attempt to  
correlate it.
