OpenSSL

OpenSSL is an open-source toolkit that implements SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) and TLS (Transport Layer Security) protocols. This test measures the RSA 4096-bit performance of OpenSSL. This test profile fork features Windows support.

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

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

OpenSSL 1.0.1g

RSA 4096-bit Performance

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 468 public results since 28 February 2018 with the latest data as of 21 June 2024.

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.

Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (OpenSSL 1.0.1g - RSA 4096-bit Performance) has an average run-time of 2 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.
