NAME

       borg-benchmark-crud - Benchmark Create, Read, Update, Delete for archives.

SYNOPSIS

       borg [common options] benchmark crud [options] REPO PATH

DESCRIPTION

       This command benchmarks borg CRUD (create, read, update, delete) operations.

       It creates input data below the given PATH and backups this data into the given REPO.  The
       REPO must already exist (it could be a fresh empty repo or an existing repo,  the  command
       will create / read / update / delete some archives named borg-test-data* there.

       Make sure you have free space there, you'll need about 1GB each (+ overhead).

       If your repository is encrypted and borg needs a passphrase to unlock the key, use:

       BORG_PASSPHRASE=mysecret borg benchmark crud REPO PATH

       Measurements  are  done with different input file sizes and counts.  The file contents are
       very artificial (either all zero or all random),  thus  the  measurement  results  do  not
       necessarily reflect performance with real data.  Also, due to the kind of content used, no
       compression is used in these benchmarks.

       C- == borg create (1st archive creation, no compression, do not use files cache)
              C-Z-   ==   all-zero   files.   full   dedup,   this   is    primarily    measuring
              reader/chunker/hasher.   C-R-  ==  random  files.  no  dedup,  measuring throughput
              through all processing stages.

       R- == borg extract (extract archive, dry-run, do everything, but do  not  write  files  to
       disk)
              R-Z-  == all zero files. Measuring heavily duplicated files.  R-R- == random files.
              No duplication here, measuring throughput through  all  processing  stages,  except
              writing to disk.

       U-  ==  borg  create  (2nd  archive creation of unchanged input files, measure files cache
       speed)
              The throughput value is kind of virtual here, it does not actually read  the  file.
              U-Z- == needs to check the 2 all-zero chunks' existence in the repo.  U-R- == needs
              to check existence of a lot of different chunks in the repo.

       D- == borg delete archive (delete last remaining archive, measure deletion + compaction)
              D-Z- == few chunks to delete / few segments to compact/remove.  D-R- == many chunks
              to delete / many segments to compact/remove.

       Please  note  that there might be quite some variance in these measurements.  Try multiple
       measurements and having a otherwise idle machine (and network, if you use it).
