Zstd Compression

This test measures the time needed to compress/decompress a sample file (a FreeBSD disk image - FreeBSD-12.2-RELEASE-amd64-memstick.img) using Zstd compression with options for different compression levels / settings.

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

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Zstd Compression 1.4.9

Compression Level: 3 - Compression Speed

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 61 public results since 3 March 2021 with the latest data as of 4 March 2021.

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.
