This is more of a fun thing: see throughput from /dev/zero to /dev/null using pv tool (usualy used to build a progress bar between to pipes / command line apps.

To use pv we will first install it from FreeBSD ports:

  cd /usr/ports/sysutils/pv
  make install clean; rehash


Then to measure throughput:

  pv /dev/zero >/dev/null
