x11perfcomp - X11 server performance comparison program


x11perfcomp [ -r | -ro ] [ -l label_file ] files


The x11perfcomp program merges the output of several x11perf(1) runs into a nice tabular format. It takes the results in each file, fills in any missing test results if necessary, and for each test shows the objects/second rate of each server. If invoked with the -r or -ro options, it shows the relative performance of each server to the first server.

Normally, x11perfcomp uses the first file specified to determine which specific tests it should report on. Some (non-DEC :) servers may fail to perform all tests. In this case, x11perfcomp automatically substitutes in a rate of 0.0 objects/second. Since the first file determines which tests to report on, this file must contain a superset of the tests reported in the other files, else x11perfcomp will fail.

You can provide an explicit list of tests to report on by using the -l switch to specify a file of labels. You can create a label file by using the -label option in x11perf.


x11perfcomp accepts the options listed below:
Specifies that the output should also include relative server performance.
Specifies that the output should include only relative server performance.
-l label_file
Specifies a label file to use.

Joel McCormack just munged them together a bit.
