Default Benchmarking using mprime on Linux

Yes you can benchmark using the linux client - it's easy.

When you invoke mprime at the console prompt, you may usually go

mprime -d

which gives detailed output.

(You may cd to the working directory and then go ./mprime -d

To do benchmarking,


mprime -m

which gives a menu driven configuration etc

Choose option

18. Options/benchmark

Results are output to the screen for the various FFT sizes, and also written to the results.txt file.

Finally use

6. Test/Exit

which takes you back to your console prompt.

You can view the results in a text editor eg.

pico results.txt

Then restart the client if you want to continue testing whatever exponent you were doing before the benchmark.


If anything you're not sure about just ask.

Got it. Thanks a lot

I did not pay much attention to other options in mprime -m before
