Here's a not-so-quick (5-6 hours) OS4 port of lmbench from


It requires a native (PPC) ixemul.library, the OS4 SDK and abc-shell or other
sh-compatible shell.

Here's the quick way to run the complete test suite if extracted to RAM:

- Open a Shell
- sh (Start abc-shell)
- cd /RAM/lmbench-2.5/bin/ppc-amigaos/
- ../../scripts/lmbench (or ../../scripts/lmbench >>/R/lmbench-results.txt)

If you don't have the SDK installed you could also run each command in
lmbench-2.5/bin/ppc-amigaos/ manually from the shell
or a script replicating the sequence in lmbench-2.5/scripts/lmbench

lat_unix causes a single DSI which can be continued but I removed it from the
test sequence in lmbench anyway.

I fixed a few bugs in the "mhz" test command (thanks Joerg for the help)

I didn't compile any of the tcp test which required fork() as I didn't have
the patience to try replacing fork() with something else, but feel free if you
are so inclined :-)

You can find a lot of goodies in the /scripts drawer and man pages in /doc

Good luck!
