In this recipe, let's discuss how to benchmark the CPU speed using various open source benchmarking tools.
One of the ways to benchmark CPU power is by measuring the wall clock time for the submitted task. The task can be like calculating the factorial of the given number, or calculating the nth Fibonacci number, or some other CPU-intensive task.
Let us discuss about how to configure phoronix and sysbench tools to benchmark the CPU:
Phoronix supports a set of CPU tests in a test suite called CPU. This test suite covers multiple CPU-intensive tasks, which are mentioned at the following URL: https://openbenchmarking.org/suite/pts/CPU.
If you want to run this CPU test suite, then you need to execute ...
