Greater Hartford GNU Linux Users Group Message Board › files from last meeting
That tutorial was really good. I wish I had written down some of the commands.
I'm actually interested in the python script to share files over the Internet :D
OH! and Mike's benchmarking script/utility :D
The python command line for sharing files over the Internet:
$ python -c "import SimpleHTTPServer; SimpleHTTPServer.test()"
Be sure to start in the directory that you want to be the root of the webserver. You can put an index.html in there if you to treat it like a real webserver.
After the meeting, I showed a suite of Windows (sorry!) based benchmarking tools. They include:
CPU-Z for cpu info:
On Linux, you can get similar info from:
$ cat /proc/cpuinfo
GPU-Z for graphics card info and benchmarks:
7za (7-zip command line version)
Does a nice compression/decompression benchmark when you type: "7za b"
which utilizes multi-core when available.
A Linux port is available on Ubuntu systems. See "p7zip-full"
Roy Longbottom's PC Benchmark Collection:
I specifically use BenchNT, which has the Linpack floating point benchmark.
For those interested, the machine connected to the projector was:
Model: Dell OptiPlex 755
Manufacture Date: 2008-07-30
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 (Conroe)
Frequency: 2333 MHz
RAM: 2048 MB
Video Card: Intel Q35 Express Chipset Family (1.6 GPixel/s pixel fillrate)
7za Max Compressing Data Rate: 3617 kB/s
7za Max Decompressing Data Rate: 52253 kB/s
Linpack Non-optimized: 190.07 MFLOPS
Linpack Optimized: 1283.19 MFLOPS
Mike Trosen will have to put up the rest of his tips, but I can try to recall specific ones if anyone jogs my memory.
