 Benchmarking With FreeBSD

"Recently someone on the FreeBSD-Current mailing list (Poul-Henning Kamp) suggested some tips for precision benchmarking in FreeBSD. This was a veritable gold mine for me as I was gearing up to conduct a salvo of benchmarks on three different systems to compare performance in a variety of areas, but during my testing I found that most of these tips were useless or ill-advised for testing hardware. It occurred to me too late that the author of the post probably had software benchmarking in mind when he wrote it, and unfortunately that has little to do with performance testing of hardware. "
