    RHEL 8 and CentOS 8 with newer 4.18 Linux Kernel performs better for AMD EPYC which is same conclusion I had when I tested CentOS 7 with 4.15+ Linux Kernels when I benchmarked AMD EPYC at packet.net :)

    Looks like AMD EPYC with Linux 4.18 and 5.0 is much faster in RHEL 8 and Ubuntu 19 than RHEL 7

    Nice, since I have EPYC CPUs on my main site. Looking forward to using CentminMod on Centos 8.

    Indeed Centmin Mod and it's optimisations on CentOS 8 is going to be a performance monster - I suspect part of it will be due to newer glibc version in RHEL/CentOS 8 as well. We shall see.

    DistroWatch.com: Put the fun back into computing. Use Linux, BSD.

    @bassie must of overlooked this so RHEL8 isn't using iptables anymore but nftables ? That will be tricky for Centmin Mod's CSF Firewall which is a wrapper to iptables. Will have to hope CSF Firewall developers add nftables support for CentOS 8 - high chance seeing as alot of cpanel/WHM web hosts use CSF Firewall with CentOS. So for CentOS 8 compatibility, CSF Firewall supporting nftables is a must :)

    Thank you so much!!! :happy: It would be like the requirement to disable SELinux, a wise trade-off... CSF is very powerful.

    I hope CSF supports nftables. Rather move into the future than go back in time.

    Small chance to no chance
    Greater chance that CSF will never be supported on CentOS 8.

    No new OS has been added to CSF for years.
    Perhaps it is better to find a replacement for CSF.

    But Centos seems to be in the supported platforms and they supporting the latest v7 and i think that many people will ask for it ... I think that they will do it...

    But let's wait and see :)

    The latest version of enterprise Ubuntu 18.04 (released from more than a year ago) is not listed.

    CSF does not work or at least does not work correctly on 18.04.
    Despite various requests. I would advise. Don't expect much from it.

    As written above, as using nftables.
    RHEL 8 has changed fundamentally on the network stack.

    This means CSF must also be adjusted considerably.
    and given the history it seems more likely that it does not happen than it does.

    I guess CSF is destined to die then. Hopefully, a replacement comes out.

    Official info:

    Hello,

    Since CentOS v8 has not yet been released, we do not have an opinion yet
    on whether or not we are going to use nftables in csf.

    Regards,
    Sarah Michaelson
