NAME
perf-bench - General framework for benchmark suites
SYNOPSIS
perf bench [<common options>] <subsystem> <suite> [<options>]
DESCRIPTION
This perf bench command is a general framework for benchmark suites.
COMMON OPTIONS
-f, --format= Specify format style. Current available format styles are: default Default style. This is mainly for human reading. .ft C % perf bench sched pipe # with no style specified (executing 1000000 pipe operations between two tasks) Total time:5.855 sec 5.855061 usecs/op 170792 ops/sec .ft simple This simple style is friendly for automated processing by scripts. .ft C % perf bench --format=simple sched pipe # specified simple 5.988 .ft
SUBSYSTEM
sched Scheduler and IPC mechanisms. mem Memory access performance. all All benchmark subsystems. SUITES FOR sched messaging Suite for evaluating performance of scheduler and IPC mechanisms. Based on hackbench by Rusty Russell. Options of messaging -p, --pipe Use pipe() instead of socketpair() -t, --thread Be multi thread instead of multi process -g, --group= Specify number of groups -l, --loop= Specify number of loops Example of messaging .ft C % perf bench sched messaging # run with default options (20 sender and receiver processes per group) (10 groups == 400 processes run) Total time:0.308 sec % perf bench sched messaging -t -g 20 # be multi-thread, with 20 groups (20 sender and receiver threads per group) (20 groups == 800 threads run) Total time:0.582 sec .ft pipe Suite for pipe() system call. Based on pipe-test-1m.c by Ingo Molnar. Options of pipe -l, --loop= Specify number of loops. Example of pipe .ft C % perf bench sched pipe (executing 1000000 pipe operations between two tasks) Total time:8.091 sec 8.091833 usecs/op 123581 ops/sec % perf bench sched pipe -l 1000 # loop 1000 (executing 1000 pipe operations between two tasks) Total time:0.016 sec 16.948000 usecs/op 59004 ops/sec .ft SUITES FOR mem memcpy Suite for evaluating performance of simple memory copy in various ways. Options of memcpy -l, --length Specify length of memory to copy (default: 1MB). Available units are B, KB, MB, GB and TB (case insensitive). -r, --routine Specify routine to copy (default: default). Available routines are depend on the architecture. On x86-64, x86-64-unrolled, x86-64-movsq and x86-64-movsb are supported. -i, --iterations Repeat memcpy invocation this number of times. -c, --cycle Use perf's cpu-cycles event instead of gettimeofday syscall. -o, --only-prefault Show only the result with page faults before memcpy. -n, --no-prefault Show only the result without page faults before memcpy. memset Suite for evaluating performance of simple memory set in various ways. Options of memset -l, --length Specify length of memory to set (default: 1MB). Available units are B, KB, MB, GB and TB (case insensitive). -r, --routine Specify routine to set (default: default). Available routines are depend on the architecture. On x86-64, x86-64-unrolled, x86-64-stosq and x86-64-stosb are supported. -i, --iterations Repeat memset invocation this number of times. -c, --cycle Use perf's cpu-cycles event instead of gettimeofday syscall. -o, --only-prefault Show only the result with page faults before memset. -n, --no-prefault Show only the result without page faults before memset.
