SPEC CINT95 Benchmark: 134.perl
- An interpreter for the Perl language.
- This version of Perl has had much of the UN*Xisms striped out (such
as /etc/passwd lookups, and setuid behavior) to simplify benchmarking
under various operating systems.
- We benchmark this against scripts that performing some basic math calculations
and word lookups in associative arrays.
- As much as 10% of the time can be spent in routines commonly found
in libc.a: malloc, free, memcpy, etc.
Types of Data Provided
- Rough estimates of some of the basic hardware level activities: CPI, I-
and D-cache activity, and TLB activity. This data is only useful for comparing
the '95 benchmarks, not for comparing against any particular hardware.
- Full gprof(1) outputs. [Procedure level profiling with call graphs.]
- The first 50 lines of the profile taken from the full gprof(1) output.
- Reports from sar(1). [System activity levels.]
