AWS vs Azure vs Google vs IBM vs Oracle - VMs Q1 2021 - sysbench CPU



Filter:


Sysbench CPU is an open source micro benchmark tool. Its job is to find the highest number of prime number during a certain amount of time. This test outputs a rate comparable across our different VMs

Our testing configuration use a number of thread equal to the CPU number and prime number under 64000. Here's a template of command line

sysbench --threads=$cpu_number --time=60 cpu --cpu-max-prime=64000 run
