bonnie++ 1.94 Publisher's description
from Russell Coker
Bonnie++ is a benchmark suite that is aimed at performing a number of simple tests of hard drive and file system performance.
Then you can decide which test is important and decide how to compare different systems after running it. I have no plans to ever have it produce a single number, because I don't think that a single number can be useful when comparing such things.
The main program tests database type access to a single file (or a set of files if you wish to test more than 1G of storage), and it tests creation, reading, and deleting of small files which can simulate the usage of programs such as Squid, INN, or Maildir format email.
What's New in This Release:Â· The program now works correctly with 64-bit file access (which means bonnie++ should work correctly on machines with more than 1G of RAM).
Â· Zcav support now skips chunks of the disk to give a faster result (some modern disks can take several hours for a single pass otherwise).
Â· All units were changed to GiB and MiB.
Â· The zcav output units were changed to match the new bigger and faster disks.
System Requirements:No special requirements.
