|| ||[ANNOUNCE] Kernbench v0.41|
|| ||Fri, 7 Apr 2006 15:33:56 +1000|
Kernbench is a cpu throughput benchmark originally devised and used by Martin
J.Bligh. It is designed to compare kernel changes on the same machine.
It runs a kernel compile at various numbers of concurrent jobs: 1/2 number of
cpus, optimal (default is 4xnumber of cpus) and maximal job count. Optionally
it can also run single threaded. It then prints out a number of useful
statistics for the average of each group of runs and logs them to
v0.41 Fixed make oldconfig
v0.40 Made all runs use the oldconfig if it exists. Changed to only do one
warmup run before all the benchmarks. Added logging to kernbench.log
Cleaned up the code substantially to reuse code where possible.
