Compile Bench

Compilebench tries to age a filesystem by simulating some of the disk IO common in creating, compiling, patching, stating and reading kernel trees. It indirectly measures how well filesystems can maintain directory locality as the disk fills up and directories age. This current test is setup to use the makej mode with 10 initial directories

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark compilebench.

Revision History

pts/compilebench-1.0.3   [View Source]   Fri, 11 Dec 2020 13:11:20 GMT
BSD fixes based on https://github.com/apurvanandan1997/pts-test-profiles-dev/tree/master/compilebench-1.0.2 but made it more generic for python2/python2.7 check.

pts/compilebench-1.0.2   [View Source]   Sun, 18 Feb 2018 15:38:42 GMT
Use python2 binary name to avoid systems where python now points to python3.

pts/compilebench-1.0.1   [View Source]   Mon, 25 Nov 2013 12:48:52 GMT
Update download link. Oracle seems to block PTS client.

pts/compilebench-1.0.0   [View Source]   Mon, 06 Dec 2010 14:35:56 GMT
Initial import into OpenBenchmarking.org

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Compile Bench 0.6

Test: Initial Create

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 10,021 public results since 26 February 2011 with the latest data as of 24 September 2022.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.
