Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

System ZLIB Decompression 1.2.7

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 176 public results since 1 February 2018 with the latest data as of 30 April 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.
