Hidden bundled UNIX benchmarking software UNIX
I was somewhat bored (Sunday morning) and was reading my news sources, including Stepwise. For months, the install ssh 3.0.2p1 has been on top of the page. And suddenly I wondered which ssh and openssl version I had installed. For checking the version, I typed
% openssl -V
but this didn't give me the version (use 'openssl version' instead), but did give the list of commands as an error message. Suddenly I noticed: speed, so then I typed:
% openssl speed
Openssl performed a full benchmark on the CPU with encrypting and decrypting ... It's not science, but an indication. I think several options influence the benchmark, but on my G4/450 the outcome was:
                  sign    verify    sign/s verify/s
rsa 512 bits 0.0065s 0.0006s 154.6 1559.8

dsa 2048 bits 0.0759s 0.0944s 13.2 10.6
Read the rest of the article for the results on a G4/350 and a G4/733.

[Editor's note: This speed test is relatively involved; it took a few minutes to run on my G4/733 and spit out much more output than is shown here. If you have a few minutes of free time, 'openssl speed' is an interesting way to fill it!]

On my G4/350 it was looking like this:
                  sign    verify    sign/s verify/s
rsa 512 bits 0.0084s 0.0008s 119.8 1228.3

dsa 2048 bits 0.0979s 0.1180s 10.2 8.5
Disclaimer: I was running several other applications at the time of testing.

[Editor's note: And here's how it came out on my G4/733, also running a bunch of stuff (including iTunes) at the time of testing:
                 sign    verify    sign/s verify/s

Results from Powermac 9500/180
Authored by: kolvir on Jan 13, '02 04:28:39PM

I seem to remember when the first biege 233 G3s were released that there were some people that hated the chip because the 604e was much better at floating point calculations than it was. And I think there were even a few 400Mhz 604s sold before they were dropped.

This is from vauge memory, so don't call me on any of it.

Results from Powermac 9500/180
Authored by: johnsawyercjs on Nov 24, '03 09:18:15PM

davidro doesn't mention if he's using Ryan Rempel's mods to get OS X to run on his Power Mac 9500; he'd have to be using Rempel's, or Sonnet's. In any case, it's been found that the patches that Rempel developed do sometimes make some non-G3 Macs run OS X faster than they otherwise could have, if Apple had done it. I haven't confirmed this myself. Check www.macsales.com for more info.

PBG4/500 vs. PIII/733
Authored by: macX_rocks on Jan 13, '02 03:42:13PM
Ran speed test on PBG4/500 (512MB, macosX 10.1.2) -- Many apps loaded, but none active during test:

More than twice as fast as the other 2... And a tad faster than the PIII/733.

bi G4/800
Authored by: thwaite on Jan 17, '02 01:58:52PM

Duplicated these numbers w/in 1% or so. And I mean duplicated - ran two copies of the test simultaneously, maxing out both cpu's per the CPU-monitor bar display. No other apps running, not even top. Box has 1.2Gb of RAM, OSX 10.1.2.

So the total work done is about half that reported by Sodre (below) with a dual 1.2GHz Athlon. Did that run engage only a single CPU? What OS did it use?

The DP800's aren't the most cost-effective performance box. But with some work choosing and tweaking s/w they're useful, and by default are a lot more secure than most boxes.

Okay... It is good to know that my US$ 1,300 performs a hell lot faster then the Dual 800 G4. It probably means that for server purposes and raw number crunching, the Athlons are doing -much- better.

I guess that extra 512MB makes more of a difference than I thought.

VMLinux Dual 866 Mhz PIII w/ 512 MB of ram
Authored by: Entreri on Jan 20, '02 05:34:56PM

Here's a (now defunct) Dual 866 PIII from VALinux... The numbers don't look bad, but of course this was only taxing a single CPU...

What's interesting is that the G4 800 Mhz processors don't even come close to these numbers. Anyone have any ideas why?

PIII/664 - OpenBSD 3 .0 + Comment
Authored by: victory on Aug 18, '02 04:01:48AM
As the original poster noted, these benchmarks shouldn't be taken too seriously. For instance, upon perusal of the OpenSSL 0.9.6b sources, I see that several modules are written in assembler for the x86 platform. Whereas no such hand-coded optimizations exists (yet) for PPC, and it appears that the precompiled version included with OSX wasn't built with any SIMD/Altivec-specific support besides the usual -O3 switch.

I wonder if Apple uses these same crypto libraries for the "File Vault" encrypted filesystem stuff. If so, you would think that they would make the effort to submit some Altivec updates to the project.. The x86's look much faster with their MMX/SSE usage, and tuned assembly code.
