Just a me 2 for postgresql tests:
I would be interrested in postgresql numbers too as i have servers with
2 x dual core (xeon, dell 2850ies) currently running 6.1. I'm basically
looking for something like a benchmark which would justify upgrading (or
even experiment with 7.x) to my boss. I am aware that it's not your job
to spend your valuable time doing obscure tests for us, so consider this
rant as another "vote" for postgresql performance benchmarks.
