bw_mmap_rd - time the reading and summing of a file
bw_mmap_rd [ -P <parallelism> ] [ -W <warmups> ] [ -N <repetitions> ] size file
bw_mmap_rd creates a memory mapping to the file and then reads the mapping in an unrolled loop similar to that used in bw_mem_rd(8). The benchmark is intended to be used on a file that is in memory, i.e., the benchmark is a reread benchmark. Other file benchmarking can be done with lmdd(8). The size specification may end with ``k'' or ``m'' to mean kilobytes (* 1024) or megabytes (* 1024 * 1024).
Output format is "%0.2f %.2f\n", megabytes, megabytes_per_second, i.e., 8.00 25.33
This benchmark should move approximately the reported amount of memory.
