    benchmark program for putting a load to the processor


    Hi!

    I'm looking for simple command line tool that I can use to put a load to the processor to check how other applications perform under heavy load.

    It should be simple and without dependencies because it should run on an embedded system with a MIPS processor having busybox on it.

    Can someone recommend such a tool (with source code for cross-compiling).

    you can use Super Pi. check this thread.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Thanks, but for super_pi, I found only a binary that doesn't run on a MIPS processor.

    realfeel.c is only one file, but is uses an asm directive only for the Intel x86 architecture.

    ubench comes with a configure and Makefile not intended for cross-compiling. After changing this, I still run into compile errors.

    Is there something easier, something which starts already with a nice:
    $ ./configure --host="..."


    Still searching ...

    Well, at the moment, I help myself remembering the simple and ancient benchmark programs like those:

    http://www.cs.cmu.edu/Groups/AI/util...rius/bench.txt

    They compile anywhere and anyhow.
