- framework of workloads to measure and compare filesystem performance
/usr/benchmarks/filebench/bin/filebench -c stats_dir...
filebench runs workloads to measure and compare filesystem performance.
Full documentation can be found at the performance community at: http://hub.opensolaris.org/bin/view/Main/
The following options are supported:
Generates a HTML file (index.html) that is a comparison of the specified directories. stats_dir specifies the directory or directories in which the results are stored.
The following operands are supported:
Specifies the name of the configuration file ending in .prof. The configuration file specifies:
what workloads to run,
what parameters to run,
the directory path on which to operate, and
the directory path in which to store the results.
The following exit values are returned:
An error occurred.
Invalid command line options were specified.
Example 1 Running the Multi-stream Sequential Read Workload
The following example runs the workloads described in the configuration file named sqread.prof:
# filebench sqread
Example 2 Comparing Multiple Runs
The following example compares the results of two previous runs.
This example assumes that the results from the two previous filebench runs were located in the directories: /stats/wombat-zfs-noel-Jun_27_2007-15h_45m_33s and /stats/wombat-ufs-noel-Jun_27_2007-15h_52m_11s.
This example generates a HTML file named index.html in your current working directory.
# filebench -c /stats/wombat-zfs-noel-Jun_27_2007-15h_45m_33s \ /stats/wombat-ufs-noel-Jun_27_2007-15h_52m_11s
