Instructions for Linux Benchmarks

STEP 1: Get the source here:

https://www.unix.com/source/bm.zip

or

https://www.unix.com/source/unix_linux_bench.tar.gz

STEP 2: unzip or untar and cd into the bm directory

STEP 3: make

(Note: there is a pre-compiled Linux binary in the distro, so Linux users don't have to make a new binary (if you don't want to compile a new one)... just go to the next step:

STEP 4: ./Run

STEP: 5: Please login to www.unix.com and post test results along with platform info to:

Included CPU info, speed, RAM, and host adapter and bus
info as well as any special compilation flags.


See TEMPLATE Below....

Thanks,
