benchmark test bash script
Hi all. I am going to be changing my system around and want to do some before/after testing. I'm thinking of doing some local copying of files, as well as some network stuff too.
I've got the basic system stuff, but I need to know how I can calculate (somewhat precisely) the amount of time it takes for the process, as well as the system resources taken up at that time (I'm thinking 'free' will handle that).
Does anybody know how I can do this and/or have any suggestions for the kind of stuff I can test that are considered good benchmark tests?
Any help would be appreciated.
I don't have any experience with this, but a search on freshmeat turned up several benchmarking utilities.

prints (on my machine):
For more info see "man time".
Thanks Hko, it looks like time is just what I was looking for (go figure).
Thanks for the link too, wapcaplet I might try out a couple of them.
