Revision History

pts/compress-pbzip2-1.6.0   [View Source]   Sat, 12 Feb 2022 07:57:00 GMT
Update against latest point release and increase the file size for more intensity on modern CPUs... Not that this test is popular but the prior download mirrors were down.

pts/compress-pbzip2-1.5.0   [View Source]   Mon, 14 Dec 2015 11:00:38 GMT
Update against pbzip 1.1.12, switch to using Linux 4.3 kernel source package as compression source.

pts/compress-pbzip2-1.4.1   [View Source]   Thu, 08 Oct 2015 16:55:25 GMT
Update download links.

pts/compress-pbzip2-1.4.0   [View Source]   Wed, 03 Oct 2012 23:05:54 GMT
Update BZIP2 against upstream 1.0.6 and update PBZIP2 against upstream 1.1.6 source.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Parallel BZIP2 Compression 1.1.13

FreeBSD-13.0-RELEASE-amd64-memstick.img Compression

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 831 public results since 12 February 2022 with the latest data as of 2 February 2023.

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.

Does It Scale Well With Increasing Cores?

Yes, based on the automated analysis of the collected public benchmark data, this test / test settings does generally scale well with increasing CPU core counts. Data based on publicly available results for this test / test settings, separated by vendor, result divided by the reference CPU clock speed, grouped by matching physical CPU core count, and normalized against the smallest core count tested from each vendor for each CPU having a sufficient number of test samples and statistically significant data.
