    openssl speed block size


    Hello!

    I have a little problem with openssl. When I run openssl speed <algorithm> it runs tests only for 16, 64, 256, 1025, 8192 blocks. Can this value be changed? I need much more, up to 8388608.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    That is not a valid block size for openssl. The speed command tests the encryption speeds for all the standard transmission block sizes, which are 16 bytes to 8192 bytes.

    So, what exactly are you trying to do?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
