psinfo shows process information and statistics using the kernel /proc interface. This information includes: process state, environment, arguments and flags; CPU usage; scheduling; I/O usage; virtual memory status; pagefaults; capabilities; and signals. psinfo is useful for providing a detailed view of the current state of an application when diagnosing issues or performance problems.
The Easy Benchmarking Suite consists of Perl scripts to collect, analyze, and plot Web site benchmarks. It supports arbitrary concurrent clients to simulate Web traffic, with each client firing a number of requests. The suite is "easy" because it can handle all types of requests (e.g., with session cookies, authentication cookies) and because the scripts can easily be tweaked to suit particular requirements.
The Open CORBA Benchmarking Suite measures several basic performance aspects of various CORBA brokers. The suite produces an XML output that can be submitted to a searchable database of broker performance data and browsed in a graphical form. The suite is portable to a number of platforms and brokers.
OpenLink ODBC Bench is an ODBC benchmarking tool providing real-time comparative benchmarking for ODBC drivers, database engines, and operating system combinations. The benchmarks in this application are loosely based on the TPC-A and TPC-C standard benchmarks, with modifications to specifically test the performance of an ODBC driver and/or database engine in a client/server environment. The benchmark results can be automatically stored to an ODBC data source or XML file for further analysis and comparisons to be made.
The Router Audit Tool (rat) downloads configurations of router devices running IOS to be audited, and then checks them against the settings defined in the benchmark. For each configuration examined, it produces a report listing the following: a list of each rule checked with a pass/fail score, a raw overall score, a weighted overall score (1-10), and a list of IOS commands that will correct problems identified.
