This is a guide for running performance benchmarks.
Before we start, make sure the CPU core frequency is close to maximum.
To see if all CPU cores are running on the same frequency and each core running on maximum supported capacity, run:
# cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu*/cpufreq/cpuinfo_max_freq
To view current CPU frequency (for comparison)
# cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu*/cpufreq/cpuinfo_cur_freq
If the CPU frequency is not at maximum capacity, make sure the settings are turned to max performance in the BIOS.
Refer to Understanding BIOS Configuration for Performance Tuning and BIOS Performance Tuning Example. for further instructions.
