Basic performance testing for dbus signals

Trying it out

  1. Copy the configuration file to allow service to be run on the system bus
    • # cp org.fubar.signal1.conf /etc/dbus-1/system.d/
  2. Build the C version
    • # ./build.sh
  3. Run the test service
    • # ./spamsignals server
  4. Run the test client
    • # ./spamsignals client
  5. Run the testcase
    • # python test.py
  6. Look at stdout from test client

Columns are: payload byte size, average diff time, messages/sec, MiB/sec, Number of signals received

Notes:

  • To run python server/client verson change ./spamsignals to ./spamsignals.py
  • To enable kdbus, append kdbus=1 to kernel command line while having the kdbus kernel module located somewhere where is can be found, like: /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/ipc/kdbus/
