Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 106855
openssl RSA performance on Athlon64 is unreasonably slow
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:58 EST
Description of problem:
"openssl speed" on an Athlon64 test server using the RH beta for AMD64 reports
922 1024-bit RSA signings per second. This is a tad less than optimized code
on an 800MHz Itanium will produce on a CPU running at less than 1/3 the speed
of the Athlon64.
922 1014-bit RSA signatures per second.
At least 3000 1024-bit RSA signatures per second.
How does it look with the latest upstream openssl?
Current Fedora Core devel package uses the optimized assembly code for BN
