Michael Larabel of Phoronix has tried out TrueOS & FreeBSD on a Xeon scalable platform / Tyan GT24E-B7106 1U server. Check out the link below for the results of his test.
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 development. Both TrueOS and FreeBSD 11.1 x64 were running fine on this Tyan + Xeon Gold server. No immediate problems to note and was able to put it through its benchmarking paces without any sweat.
Nevertheless, it’s great to see TrueOS / FreeBSD running fine with the Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs and the Tyan GT24E-B7106.
