X11PERFCOMP(1)              General Commands Manual             X11PERFCOMP(1)

       x11perfcomp - X11 server performance comparison program

       /usr/bin/x11perfcomp [ -r | -ro ] [ -l label_file ] files

       The  x11perfcomp  program  merges the output of several x11perf(1) runs
       into a nice tabular format.  It takes the results in each  file,  fills
       in  any  missing test results if necessary, and for each test shows the
       objects/second rate of each server.  If invoked  with  the  -r  or  -ro
       options,  it shows the relative performance of each server to the first

       Normally, x11perfcomp uses the first file specified to determine  which
       specific  tests it should report on.  Some (non-DEC :) servers may fail
       to perform all tests.  In this case, x11perfcomp automatically  substi-
       tutes in a rate of 0.0 objects/second.  Since the first file determines
       which tests to report on, this file must  contain  a  superset  of  the
       tests reported in the other files, else x11perfcomp will fail.

       You  can provide an explicit list of tests to report on by using the -l
       switch to specify a file of labels.  You can create  a  label  file  by
       using the -label option in x11perf.

       x11perfcomp accepts the options listed below:

       -r              Specifies  that the output should also include relative
                       server performance.

       -ro             Specifies that the output should include only  relative
                       server performance.

       -l label_file   Specifies a label file to use.

       There are no X defaults used by this program.

       Mark Moraes wrote the original scripts to compare servers.
       Joel McCormack just munged them together a bit.
