Utilities to benchmark UNIX systems

Lmbench is a set of utilities to test the performance of a unix system producing detailed results as well as providing tools to process them. It includes a series of micro benchmarks that measure some basic operating system and hardware metrics: * file reading and summing * memory bandwidth while reading, writing and copying * copying data through pipes * copying data through Unix sockets * reading data through TCP/IP sockets
