Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Application Start-up Time 3.4.0

Background I/O Mix: Sequential Reads + Writes - Application To Start: LibreOffice Writer - Disk Target: Default Test Directory

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 136 public results since 31 May 2019 with the latest data as of 9 June 2024.

Additional benchmark metrics will come after OpenBenchmarking.org has collected a sufficient data-set.

Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (Application Start-up Time 3.4.0 - Background I/O Mix: Sequential Reads + Writes - Application To Start: LibreOffice Writer - Disk Target: Default Test Directory) has an average run-time of 21 minutes. By default this test profile is set to run at least 3 times but may increase if the standard deviation exceeds pre-defined defaults or other calculations deem additional runs necessary for greater statistical accuracy of the result.
