NSS performance

Hi,

I would like to know if I can expect the same performance from NSS on
Linux compared to NSS on Netware?

Thanks.

No. In fact, not even close.

Is there a benchmark link somewhere that proves this or are we just
going on personal experience?

I doubt there's some official Benchmark, unless provided by some third
party. At Brainshare, the Developers said something like 50%, depending
on what load.
Given that NSS is currently limited on Linux to max 1GB of cache, I
suspect that in a truly high load scenario it's even way worse than
that. A Netware server with 4GB memory has about 3GB of NSS Cache when
properly configured, and can even use memory above 4GB for NSS cache
too, so could be tuned to have 10GB or more of NSS cache. On a truly
high loaded server, 10GB vs. 1GB of cache certainly makes a bigger
difference than "only" 50%.

Good to know. Thanks 🙂

Re: NSS performance

Word on the street, and over at the Cool Solutions web site, is that
with OES SP1, Linux NSS will smoke Netware (or at least be equal to).

Seeing as I am, quite literally, from Missouri, I would like to get SP1
and see if it is true.
