Does OpenBSD's kernel support SMP by default?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I would think it does, but apparently FreeBSD's "GENERIC" kernel doesn't support it by default. Of course, it probably customizes the kernel at install-time when it sees I'm running a dual core proc.

For Linux only a single client is available, the Console client (CLI), just like it is for the CPU client. It is currently unknown if the Linux SMP client can also run on FreeBSD and OpenBSD like the CPU client can. The -freeBSD and -openBSD flags and their associated brandelf and elf2olf calls are still in the client, though.

According to a test run by Nick Piggin, a college student in Canberra who has done work for the I/O scheduler on the Linux Kernel, FreeBSD clearly edges out the newest Linux kernel when using the SMP client. Though the statistic is not terribly large and may be due to a number of factors it really quite interesting as we having seen FreeBSD as a real contender for Folding in a long time.

I'm going with a defiant maybe.
