ods-hsmspeed - OpenDNSSEC HSM speed tester
ods-hsmspeed [-c config] -r repository [-i iterations] [-s keysize] [-t
The ods-hsmspeed utility is part of OpenDNSSEC and can be used to test
the performance of the configured HSMs.
The components of OpenDNSSEC do not talk directly to the HSMs, but uses
an internal library called libhsm. It then talks to the HSMs using
PKCS#11. The libhsm simplifies the process of creating keys and
signatures for the other components of OpenDNSSEC.
ods-hsmspeed will measure the speed by using the libhsm. The result
that you get is somewhat lower than what the manufactures promises,
because the libhsm creates some overhead to the pure PKCS#11
Path to an OpenDNSSEC configuration file.
(defaults to /etc/opendnssec/conf.xml)
Specify the number of iterations for signing an RRset. A higher
number of iterations will increase the performance.
(defaults to 1 iteration)
The speed test will be performed on this repository.
A temporary RSA key with the given keysize will be used for
(defaults to 1024 bit)
The number of threads to use. Most HSMs will be utilized better
with multiple threads.
(defaults to 1 thread)
