FxMark: Filesystem Multicore Scalability Benchmark

Install & build

  • Tested: Ubuntu 14.04

  • Install filesystem-specific packages (e.g., mkfs.*)

$ bin/install-fs-tools.sh
  • Build FxMark
$  make
  • Clean FxMark
$  make clean

How to run

  • Benchmark configuration

    • Set target media paths at bin/run-fxmark.py (e.g., Runner.LOOPDEV)
    • Set configuration for each run at bin/run-fxmark.py (i.e., run_config)
  • Run benchmark

    • A log file will be created at 'logs' directory with starting time.
$  bin/run-fxmark.py

Plot results

  • Scalability graphs
$  bin/plotter.py --ty sc --log {log file} --out {output pdf file}
  • CPU utilization graphs
$  bin/plotter.py --ty util --log {log file} --ncore {# core} --out {output pdf file}

Macro benchmarks

  • Refer to our fxmark-apps branch in the vbench repo for exim and rocksdb
