Linode CPU Question
on the two servers are as follows:
CPU type: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU L5420 @ 2.50GHz , 4 cores
CPU type: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU L5630 @ 2.13GHz , 4 cores
Is there any advantage of using one or the other? Currently the production server is on the L5420.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Not that it isn't a logical question to ask, if only for curiosity's sake. Probably the only way to know for sure is to come up with a metric that makes sense for your application and test the two cases. That way you're also taking into account the entire environment (other guest load, I/O contention, etc…) Probably not worth the effort unless you're seeing performance issues.
