Benchmarking Softwares for ubuntu linux

Some Benchmarking tools used in Linux

1. Dbench
dbench is a filesystem benchmark that generates load patterns similar to those of the commercial Netbench benchmark. tbench is for TCP benchmarking.
sudo apt-get install dbench

2. Netperf
Network Performance benchmarking tool. It can be used to measure the performance of many different types of networking. It measures TCP and UDP via BSD Sockets for both IPv4 and IPv, DLPI, Unix Domain Sockets and SCTP for both IPv4 and IPv6 1.
sudo apt-get install netperf

3. Bonnie++
This is a benchmark suite that is aimed at performing a number of simple tests of hard drive and file system performance. now version 1.03 is available.Bonnie++ was based on the code for Bonnie by Tim Bray.
apt-get install bonnie++

4. Xbench
A graphical benchmarking program for measuring, tuning and comparing X windows server performance.

5. Iozone

apt-get install iozone3

6. lmbench
This is a simple and portable benchmarking tool, which analyzes memory, cpu of a system.
apt-get install lmbench

7. unixbench
A fundamental high-level Linux benchmark suite, Unixbench integrates CPU and file I/O tests, as well as system behavior under various user loads.
