this tutorial is work in progress... come back later.

Here are some hints on how to benchmark your FreeBSD machine.

First there's flops from FreeBSD ports. flops is an app that compute a benchmark on floating point speed and it gives you MFLOPS rating. To install it run:

  cd /usr/ports/benchmarks/flops
  make install clean; rehash


Then to use it run:

  flops

You will get:

flops run output
# flops
