x11perfcomp – X11 server performance comparison program
x11perfcomp [ -r | -ro ] [ -l label_file ] files
The x11perfcomp program merges the output of several x11perf 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
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 substi‐
tutes 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:
-r Specifies that the output should also include relative
-ro Specifies that the output should include only relative
-l label_file Specifies a label file to use.
There are no X defaults used by this program.
Mark Moraes wrote the original scripts to compare servers.
Joel McCormack just munged them together a bit.
