Install and Run UnixBench on CentOS or Debian VPS and Run UnixBench on CentOS or Debian VPS

UnixBench is the original BYTE UNIX benchmark suite, updated and revised by many people over the years.

The purpose of UnixBench is to provide a basic indicator of the performance of a Unix-like system; hence, multiple tests are used to test various aspects of the system’s performance. These test results are then compared to the scores from a baseline system to produce an index value, which is generally easier to handle than the raw scores. The entire set of index values is then combined to make an overall index for the system.

To install and run UnixBench, just do the following (for CentOS):

# yum install gcc gcc-c++ make libXext-devel
# wget -c
# tar xvzf unixbench-5.1.2.tar.gz
# cd unixbench-5.1.2
# make
# ./Run

UnixBench should begin running tests and output a final score. For Debian/Ubuntu:

# apt-get install libx11-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libxext-dev perl perl-modules make
# wget
# tar xvf unixbench-5.1.2.tar.gz
# cd unixbench-5.1.2
# ./Run
