What does this "benchmark" actually test?
time dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/null bs=1024k count=1024
I was dealing with a "sluggish" machine awhile back and thought this one up. I found that it was a pretty good way for me to test if my "tuning" attempts had improved overall performance.
Now I find myself comparing machines... I can't stop!
Anyway, would anyone care to enlighten me on which components of the box are getting tested?
I only saw an increase in CPU activity when running that.
