This list of Linux benchmark scripts and tools should prove helpful for quick performance checks of CPU, storage, memory, and network on Linux servers and VPS. Check each script before running from the command line.
Most of these scripts will benchmark the CPU, memory, storage, and network. In most cases, the CPU Model, frequency, number of cores will be displayed along with a basic CPU performance bench. Memory totals will be shown (see the other more extensive tools below for memory-specific benchmarks). System storage (SSD, NVMe, etc.) input/output speeds will be tested, and finally, the server’s internet connection will be tested by downloading files from common test locations around the world.
If your web host points to the cause of poor application performance as being solely related to WebDev, use these command-line scripts to help verify if hardware (example: disk/storage bottleneck) or network may also be to blame.
