Re: [MirageOS-devel] Benchmarking tools on Mirage


Thank you for the pointers.

I was looking for something like a port of the stress tool (or similar) to an unikernel. I'll take a look at this stuff and figure if we can reuse some of it, otherwise we might just port some tool to minios ourselves.

Hi Anil

I'm looking for benchmarking utilities implemented on top of unikernels, for 
some benchmarking work we're doing here at NEC. We're looking for something 
that is able to do network and block IO, CPU and memory utilization tests, etc. 
Something similar to stress. Is there something implemented on top of Mirage 
that you know about?

Hi Filipe,

CCing the devel list, as there have been a number of small tools over the
years, but the status of each varies.

I'm aware of:

- individual apps for papers (like Jitsu/NSDI, ASPLOS) which are captured
   in their respective repositories but frozen to that version.
- library test cases that exist (e.g. in Irmin) that stress that particular
- Jon Ludlam from Citrix built some Xen-specific unikernels that could
   run under XenRT, but not sure if this is still run or maintained.

Having some focussed tests on network and block performance in particular
would be valuable and quite easy to setup.  There's a really good
benchmarking suite in Core_bench that does multivariate analysis:
