NAME

       lat_ops - basic CPU operation parallelism

SYNOPSIS

       lat_ops [ -W <warmups> ] [ -N <repetitions> ]

DESCRIPTION

       lat_ops  measures  the latency of basic CPU operations, such as integer
       ADD.

       integer bit, add, mul, div, mod operations
              maximum  parallelism  for  integer  XOR,  ADD,  MUL,  DIV,   MOD
              operations.

       uint64 bit, add, mul, div, mod operations
              maximum   parallelism   for  uint64  XOR,  ADD,  MUL,  DIV,  MOD
              operations.

       float add, mul, div operations
              maximum parallelism for flot ADD, MUL, DIV operations.

       double add, mul, div operations
              maximum parallelism for flot ADD, MUL, DIV operations.

BUGS

       This benchmark is highly experimental and may  sometimes  (frequently?)
       give erroneous results.
