Lbench is a Linux multithread benchmarking tool. Various aspects of CPU and OS performance are measured for one to nine parallel threads. The objective is to measure how well performance scales with multiple CPU processor cores and multiple process threads. There are two modes of operation, command-line and GUI window. Benchmarks include disk performance for random and serial operations with different block sizes and memory speed for small (cache) and large (main) memory regions.
What's new in version 2.0
Version 2.0 has added the classic Whetstone benchmark and replaced deprecated GTK functions with new versions.
