OSBench

OSBench is a collection of micro-benchmarks for measuring operating system primitives like time to create threads/processes, launching programs, creating files, and memory allocation.

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