NAME

       mhz - calulate processor clock rate

SYNOPSIS

       mhz [-c]

DESCRIPTION

       mhz  calculates  the  processor  clock  rate and megahertz.  It uses an
       unrolled, interlocked loop of adds or shifts.  So far,  superscalarness
       has been defeated on the tested processors (SuperSPARC, RIOS, Alpha).

OUTPUT

       Output  format  is  either  just the clock rate as a float (-c) or more
       verbose

       39.80 Mhz, 25 nanosec clock

       mhz  is  described   more   completely   in   ``mhz:   Anatomy   of   a
       microbenchmark''   in  Proceedings  of  1998  USENIX  Annual  Technical
       Conference , June 1998.
