Benchmarking Utility for Linux(Debian)


Hi,

I am using Debian (etch) running kernel 2.6.16 with GNOME. I was wondering if there is any utility(free is possible) for testing 2D graphics on Linux? Or even a generic benchmarking utility for Linux which includes testing of 2D graphics.

thanks

Not sure about etch, but when I apt-cache search for benchmark in Sarge, I come back with "xengine -- A benchmark program for the X Window System".

Here's a link I found, not sure if it'll be helpful or not...

Thanks. Appreciate it very much. I used the xengine utility and it seems that it gives FPS as a performance measures. I have also used glxgears and this also gives FPS. Are both of these utilities the same? Because xengine give around 1000 FPS while glxgears gives around 50 FPS.?

Thanks

No idea. I'm actually not very proficient with some of these tools. I just am good with google and apt-cache search and can point people in the right directions. I'm not nearly as "Senior Member" as this forum labels me...
