Subject: [RFC In-kernel benchmarks 0/3] Introduce in kernel benchmarks
Date: Tuesday 13th October 2009 20:02:33 UTC (over 7 years ago)
In kernel benchmarks are benchmarks that directly run in kernel space. The test modules are regular kernel modules that can be loaded with modprobe slab_test or so. The initialization function of the module will then run the test and fail so that the module is not loaded. The output of the test results will be written to the system log. This is a rough draft. I have used these in the past to benchmark page allocator, slab allocator and vmstat performance.
