NAME

       bw_mmap_rd - time the reading and summing of a file

SYNOPSIS

       bw_mmap_rd [ -P <parallelism> ] [ -W <warmups> ] [ -N <repetitions> ] size file

DESCRIPTION

       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

       Output format is "%0.2f %.2f\n", megabytes, megabytes_per_second, i.e.,

       8.00 25.33

MEMORY UTILIZATION

       This benchmark should move approximately the reported amount of memory.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

       Funding  for  the  development  of  this  tool  was  provided by Sun Microsystems Computer
       Corporation.
