What is Linux-Bench?

Linux-Bench is a simple script that provides a basic level of Linux benchmarking functionality. Instead of running multiple scripts that will have dependencies vary based on each operating system, Linux-Bench handles all of the dependency installation and updating automatically. It works on major Linux distributions such as CentOS, RHEL and Ubuntu.

Linux-Bench is mainly focused on processor performance. A storage version is currently being tested.

It is also designed to be minimally invasive. There is a Docker.io container based version and the main script can be run from a standard Ubuntu 14.04 LTS LiveCD using only three commands. By mounting a LiveCD over IPMI/ KVM-over-IP functionality, Linux-Bench can be run remotely on servers with no local disks installed.

Linux-Bench script's parameters have been profiled across over 200 different systems, from low-end Atoms up to quad-socket Xeon and Opteron servers, thanks to an active community participating and posting edits in GitHub.
