Xmark − summarize x11perf results
Xmark is a shell script that reads the indicated datafile and compiles a benchmark which it writes to standard output. It writes three numbers:
A weighted performance number for the x11perf results.
A weighted performance number for a standard SparcStation 1, with SunOS 4.1.2, X11R5 Xsun, and a CG3 dumb Color Frame Buffer.
The Xmark, which is the ratio of the two numbers above.
The datafile must be an ordinary file, produced by x11perf in the following way:
x11perf -display display -v1.3 -rop GXcopy GXxor -all > datafile
It is possible
to run the GXcopy and GXxor tests separately, as long as
they are concatenated to the same output file:
x11perf -display display -v1.3 -rop GXcopy -all > datafile
x11perf -display display -v1.3 -rop GXxor -all >> datafile
x11perf -display display -v1.3 -rop GXxor -all > datafile
x11perf -display display -v1.3 -rop GXcopy -all >> datafile
Temporary file created in the current directory, deleted after use.
