unixbench
 
greetings all.

i've recently setup an athlon64 box which i'm running slack on. i've recently been interested in running some benchmarks on it, so i downloaded unixbench. i'm not really sure about the results i received... i don't really have any way to interpret them. i've searched online for any kind of information pertaining to understand the results, but to no avail. a scale of some kind, perhaps? does anyone know of a howto that i've overlooked that might be handy? also, i'll paste my results below, perhaps someone might have some input? i'm running an athlon64 3200+ venice chip.
thank you kindly!

FINAL SCORE 854.1

Isn't it like most bench marking? totally useless without a solid 'standard' score to test against.

You have your final score, presumably you find other users and if your score is better than theirs, your system performs better.

Did unixbench not come with a man page, or any docs?

RedLeader 08-08-2006 11:15 AM

unixbench doesn't really come with any documentation, save for a README to help you get it installed and running. i tried ethics' (why didn't i think of that in the first place?) idea and came up with some results.

thanks for the support guys.
