The following operands are supported:

profile

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

  • The directory path in which to store the results

Exit Status

The following exit values are returned:

0

Successful completion

1

Examples

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
