Unixbench for Mac

Unixbench is the most used benchmarking software tool. Free benchmark and good replacement for GeekBench 3/4. It can measure the performance of bash scripts, CPUs in multithreading and single threading. It can also measure the performance for parallel task. Also, specific disk IO for small and large files are performed.


To use Unixbench:

1. UnixBench from version 5.1 on has both system and graphics tests.
If you want to use the graphic tests, edit the Makefile and make sure
that the line “GRAPHIC_TESTS = defined” is not commented out; then check
that the “GL_LIBS” definition is OK for your system. Also make sure
that the “x11perf” command is on your search path.

If you don’t want the graphics tests, then comment out the
“GRAPHIC_TESTS = defined” line. Note: comment it out, don’t
set it to anything.

2. Do “make”.

3. Do “Run” to run the system test; “Run graphics” to run the graphics
tests; “Run gindex” to run both.

You will need perl, as Run is written in perl.

For more information on using the tests, read “USAGE”.

For information on adding tests into the benchmark, see “WRITING_TESTS”.
