Release Notes: This version implements stress tests for copy and comparison. It also has an updated 'makefile' and 'configure' in order to provide clean builds on HP-UX with the HP standard ANSI C compiler, and AIX 5 as well.
Release Notes: This version brings over 15 improvements. Among them are the "--daze" option that enables full buffer and file random pattern filling, the "--part" option to report alternate buffer size statistics, the "--bias" option to skip possibly cached blocks, hardened command-line parameter parsing, better signal and error descriptions, the "-Z" option to limit test duration by size transferred, the "-D" option to end tests at a given date and time, fixed Solaris configuration phase and manual page installation, and choice of random cache hit illustration.
Release Notes: This version implements an option (-M) to limit the number of "passes" per test when the "wrap" and "time" flags are selected. It also brings improvements to the documentation (README, man-page, and usage-help), as well as a bugfix related to the combination of the time-limit flag with the "slab" region selection.
Release Notes: This version implements a "poke" test, enhanced log and on-screen information, and the ability to produce a partial report upon interruption. It also enables the proper combination of the "--uniq" and "--perc" flags. This version includes the option to pass the elapsed time limit to the "-t" flag in the form of "hh:mm:ss". The validation test has been enlarged to include a broader set of features and flag combinations. This version has been tested to be stable on AIX 5-6, Solaris 8-10, Linux, HP-UX 11, BSD, and CygWin.
Release Notes: This version implements an option (-P) to provide a 'bit pattern' that will be used to fill the output buffer. This version also includes a 'force flag' (-F) to allow overwriting of existing files on the 'make' test. This version was tested and validated 'Stable' on Solaris 10, AIX 6, HP-UX 11.31, and CentOS 5.4.
Release Notes: This version implements the option to include a timestamp in the filenames for log and error messages. It also includes better validation of command line arguments and flags. This version has been tested and verified stable on AIX, Solaris, HP-UX, Linux, and Cygwin.
Release Notes: This version introcuces new options for verbose details (-v), separation of error messages (-E), and display of version information. It implements the use of an environment variable ($VDT) that can be used to inform an alternate working directory (default is $HOME/.vdt if it exists), or to pass command line option flags and parameters. Another feature of this version is the recognition and parsing of a "flag file" ('vdt.opt' if it is found on the working directory), that can be used to hold the very same options as the $VDT environment variable.
Release Notes: This release adds an option to show numbers in powers of 1000 instead of 1024 (SI Units). It logs elapsed time per test. It has been tested and verified on AIX, Solaris, HP-UX, Linux, and Cygwin.
Release Notes: This release adds a timeout (in seconds) flag. It implements Linux distribution detection. It has improved error and log messages.
Release Notes: This release implements processor family detection. It has been ported and tested OK on AIX, Solaris, HP-UX, Linux, and Cygwin. Pre-compiled binaries are available for these platforms.
