Yet-Another-Bench-Script

Here's an attempt to create yet another damn Linux server benchmarking script.

This script isn't an attempt to be a golden standard. It's just yet another bench script to add to your arsenal. Included are several tests that I think are most beneficial for the end-user. If there's features that you would like to see added, feel free to submit an issue describing your feature request or fork the project!

How to Run

curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/masonr/yet-another-bench-script/master/yabs.sh | bash

This script has been tested on CentOS 7, CentOS 8, Debian 9, Debian 10, Fedora 30, Ubuntu 16.04, and Ubuntu 18.04. It is designed to not require any external dependencies to be installed nor elevated privileges.

Skipping Tests

By default, the script runs all three tests described in the next section below. In the event that you wish to skip one or more of the tests, use the commands below:

curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/masonr/yet-another-bench-script/master/yabs.sh -o yabs.sh; chmod +x yabs.sh
./yabs.sh -{dig}
  • -d this option disables the dd/ioping (disk performance) test
  • -i this option disables the iperf (network performance) test
  • -g this option disables the Geekbench (system performance) test

Options can be grouped together to skip multiple tests, i.e. ./yabs -dg to skip the disk and system performance tests (effectively only testing network performance).

Tests Conducted

  • dd & ioping - the dd utility is utilized to test sequential write disk performance and the ioping utility is used to test sequential read disk performance.
  • iperf3 - the industry standard for testing download and upload speeds to various locations. This script utilizes iperf3 with 8 parallel threads and tests both download and upload speeds. If an iperf server is busy after 10 tries, the speed test for that location/direction is skipped.
  • Geekbench 4 - Geekbench is a benchmarking program that measures system performance, which is widely used in the tech community. The web URL is displayed to be able to see complete test and individual benchmark results and allow comparison to other geekbench'd systems. The claim URL to add the Geekbench 4 result to your Geekbench profile is written to a file in the directory that this script is executed from.

Acknoledgements

This script was inspired by several great benchmarking scripts out there, including, but not limited to, bench.sh, nench.sh, ServerBench, among others. Members of both the HostBalls and LowEndTalk hosting-related communities play a pivotal role in testing, evaluating, and shaping this script as it matures.
