I would like to do a *valid* study of softdeps
impact on system performance. I have enabled it
on all of my hosts and so far am pleased, but
I want to find the catch.
Thusfar I have forumulated the following tools
I can use to measure the impact of softdep:
bsdbench (paging/mfs usage)
time ls -1R /usr/pkg
time du -s /usr/pkg
I have not tried lmbench yet.
So, my question to the gang is, I want one tool,
one test, I am thinking bonnie.
Also I have only 2 platforms, a sparc and i386
both on 1.5-rel. If anyone else would like to join
the fray I would be more than happy to add the results.
Thanks for your time gang,
