I have two similar systems, but one is running a bit slower, and I can't figure out why.
time convert rose: -resize 5000x5000 -bench 5 /tmp/rose.png Performance: 5i 0.221729ips 26.050u 0:22.549 real 0m22.554s user 0m25.795s sys 0m0.262s
time convert rose: -resize 5000x5000 -bench 5 /tmp/rose.png Performance: 5i 0.220167ips 28.710u 0:22.710 real 0m22.731s user 0m25.553s sys 0m3.172s
While the overall time is about the same.. The sys time (time spent in kernel) is over 10 times as long.
What would make this happen? What can I look into to figure this out?
update 1: Memory is the same and /tmp is not full.
update 2: Since these are Core i7 2600's I'm thinking it might have to do with the chipset recall and slower drive performance. Or maybe they were set up differently.
