bytebench-3.1 – BYTE magazine benchmark suite


The BYTE benchmark suite tests several aspects of system performance.

An article, which describes the concepts and helps understand the results 
can be found in the doc directory (/usr/local/lib/bytebench/doc if you use 
a PREFIX of /usr/local).

This benchmark is quite prominent among Linux users, and there is a patched 
version available from some web suite, from where results are made available, 

Since they offer some results of non-Linux systems for comparison, they might 
be interested in OpenBSD/FreeBSD reports, too ;-)

Quoting from "README.submittal" of the Linux version of this benchmark suite:

% Please e-mail test results along with platform info to:
% results@silkroad.com
% Included CPU info, speed, RAM, and host adapter and bus
% info as well as any special compilation flags.
% See TEMPLATE Below....
% results will be included in the URL:

% Thanks,
