We have two tools for benchmarking our servers, which are Sysbench and Geekbench. The two tools were tested on pollock. Sysbench is useful for evaluating the basic performance of the machine, while Geekbench is able to provide more details of the machine even with its free features(Geekbench has paid features, but they are not important in our cases).
A bash script of using sysbench(tested on pollock):
sysbench cpu --cpu-max-prime=20000 run >> Benchmark.txt sysbench fileio --file-total-size=150G prepare >> Benchmark.txt sysbench fileio --file-total-size=150G --file-test-mode=rndrw --init-rng=on --max-time=300 --max-requests=0 run >> Benchmark.txt sysbench memory --threads=2 run >> Benchmark.txt
The script of using Geekbench is at /mount/pollock/software/geekbench
