pipebench - Shows speed of stdin/stdout communication
pipebench [ -ehqQIoru ] [ -s file | -S file ] [ -b bufsize ]
Measures the speed of stdin/stdout communication.
-h Displays a help message and exits. -e If an error occurs, exit (breaking the pipe between stdin and stdout. By default an error message is printed to stderr and the program continues. -q Only show summary stats. -Q Don't show running speed or summary stats. Same as -q -o. Can be used to play with buffer size. -o Don't show summary. -b bufsize Use this buffer size, in bytes. -r Just show raw speed, no fancy stuff. And no summary. -s file Write status to file instead of stderr. -S file Write status to file instead of stderr. -I Use 1kB = 1000B, instead of the default 1024B. -u Don't convet to units (kilo, Mega, etc...)
Benchmark and show progress of backup # (cd /home/; tar cf - .) | pipebench | (cd /mnt/backup/; tar xf -) A number to brag to your friends about $ dd if=/dev/zero bs=80k count=60k 2> /dev/null | ./pipebench -q > /dev/null
No known bugs... yet.
