UnixBench is the original BYTE UNIX benchmark suite, updated and revised by
many people over the years.
The purpose of UnixBench is to provide a basic indicator of the performance of
a Unix-like system; hence, multiple tests are used to test various aspects of
the system's performance. These test results are then compared to the scores
from a baseline system to produce an index value, which is generally easier to
handle than the raw scores. The entire set of index values is then combined to
make an overall index for the system.
Some very simple graphics tests are included to measure the 2D and 3D graphics
performance of the system.
Multi-CPU systems are handled. If your system has multiple CPUs, the default
behaviour is to run the selected tests twice -- once with one copy of each test
program running at a time, and once with N copies, where N is the number of
CPUs. This is designed to allow you to assess:
the performance of your system when running a single task
the performance of your system when running multiple tasks
the gain from your system's implementation of parallel processing
Do be aware that this is a system benchmark, not a CPU, RAM or disk
benchmark. The results will depend not only on your hardware, but on your
operating system, libraries, and even compiler.
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap can be installed from the command line on openSUSE Leap 15.x and Tumbleweed.
You need first add the snappy repository from the terminal. Leap 15.2 users, for example, can do this with the following command:
Swap out openSUSE_Leap_15.2 for openSUSE_Leap_15.1, openSUSE_Leap_15.0, or openSUSE_Tumbleweed if you’re using a different version of openSUSE.
With the repository added, import its GPG key:
Finally, upgrade the package cache to include the new snappy repository:
Snap can now be installed with the following:
You then need to either reboot, logout/login or source /etc/profile to have /snap/bin added to PATH.
Additionally, enable and start both the snapd and the snapd.apparmor services with the following commands:
