Hi Ahmed/Tino,



Thank you for sharing your experience.

I have couple of more questions about the tests that you may have performed.


Which Server *X OS or specific distribution of it gave the best performance
with stability?

Did you do the tests in SMP environment?

Did you do the tests with both x86_32(i386) and x86_64 versions of the
OS/HW?

Did you tests have heavy Mnesia R/W or File/Network IO?

Did you have the configurations and usage for asynchronous threads,
epoll/kqueue, HiPE, SMP?

Did you do the tests for distributed node setup across hosts?


I look forward to hear from you.


Regards,
Kannan.
