Benchmarking the Linux Kernel

Three students and a professor from Northern Michigan University spent the semester benchmarking nineteen versions of the Linux kernel, from 2.0.1 to 2.4.0.

Many functions improved in speed, but some did not. Performance improvements have been "bumpy". Total lines of code have tripled, and are on an exponential growth curve.

Results from our benchmarks and line counts will be shown, and some explanations for the changes offered.
