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,

INSTEAD use

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.

Pretty much SELF-DOCUMENTING!

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
