voglperf

Benchmarking tool for Linux OpenGL games. Spews frame information every second. Example:

##############################################################################
Voglperf framerates from pid 12106.
##############################################################################
3564.35 fps frames:3567 time:1000.74ms min:0.23ms max:14.72ms
4144.01 fps frames:4145 time:1000.24ms min:0.23ms max:1.20ms
4037.20 fps frames:4038 time:1000.20ms min:0.23ms max:1.20ms
4059.60 fps frames:4060 time:1000.10ms min:0.23ms max:1.09ms

Can also write frame times to a log file which can then be graphed with gnuplot, etc.

cat /tmp/voglperf.glxspheres64.2014_02_12-16_02_20.csv:

Building

We use cmake and the voglproj binaries are put into the bin directory. A Makefile is included to simplify this a bit and see how cmake is launched.

To build amd64 and i386 packages:

make

To build just i386:

make voglperf32

To build just amd64:

make voglperf64

To delete the build32, build64, and bin build files:

make clean

    • Logfile stopped: http://172.16.10.93:8081/logfile/tmp/voglperf.Team-Fortress-2.2014_04_01-06_28_16.csv

  • Right click on logfile link and say "Open in New Tab" (or whatever).

Run vogl w/ SSH on SteamOS

  • Run ip addr and note IP address of your SteamOS box.
    • ssh desktop@127.16.10.93
    • cd voglperf
    • sudo -u steam bin/voglperfrun64
    • Run various commands:
      • help
      • status
      • showfps on
      • game start 440

Notes

  • HTML needs to be cleaned up.
  • Occasionally web client will think two clients are connected and duplicated messages. (Needs to be tracked down.)
  • We are currently adding voglperf as a SteamOS package.

Logfiles

Display graph in gnuplot (install gnuplot-x11):

gnuplot -p -e 'set terminal wxt size 1280,720;set ylabel "milliseconds";set yrange [0:100]; plot "/tmp/voglperf.Team-Fortress-2.2014_02_13-13_06_20.csv" with lines'

Output graph to blah.png:

gnuplot -p -e 'set output "blah.png";set terminal pngcairo size 1280,720 enhanced;set ylabel "milliseconds";set yrange [0:100]; plot "/tmp/voglperf.Team-Fortress-2.2014_02_13-13_06_20.csv" with lines'
