SIG-Linux Topic:  Performance Evaluation of Linux Operating Systems

Presented by Sharan Kalwani

This is a review of a recent conference paper presented at the 2020 International Conference on Smart Systems and Technologies (SST).

Considering the popularity of available Linux distributions, 3 Linux desktop distributions were selected for evaluation. The idea of this paper is to evaluate performance and compare 3 different Linux distributions and their influence on processor, memory, graphics system and disk drive performance. Measurements were performed with different benchmarking tools specialized for a specific computer component. I will do a critical analysis of this.
