While we have tested a number of Linux distributions on Intel's new
Xeon Scalable platform, here are some initial BSD tests using two Xeon
Gold 6138 processors with the Tyan GT24E-B7106 1U barebones server.
FreeBSD 11.1 and the FreeBSD-derivative desktop/workstation-focused
TrueOS (formerly known as PC-BSD) were the primary candidates for
testing. TrueOS stable is currently tracking FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT
When comparing the out-of-the-box performance of FreeBSD/TrueOS and
even with running under the GCC compiler rather than LLVM Clang, the
Linux distributions were offering noticeably better performance on
this dual Intel Xeon Gold server.
