Welcome to The TOFFEE Project :: TrueBench.
TrueBench is an unique open-source benchmarking system in which the core system performance and efficiency parameters are measured at extreme
high resolution in the order of several million/billion µ-seconds for a given specific task. TrueBench can be used to measure specific system performance
of user-space application performance in a systems software point-of-view. With this technique you can isolate multi-core CPU performance,
multi-threading CPU performance and derive a precise conclusion about the CPU's true potential. TrueBench is a part of
The TOFFEE Project research.

- TrueBench does not benchmark all CPU instructions/logic and CPU cores? TrueBench is strictly single dimension benchmarking system.
We need to test the most common CPU instructions which are commonly used. And this way we can compare with other hardware architectures. And we
need to isolate the multi-dimension aspect of CPU cores. TrueBench is a very simple code but still takes long time to complete execution.
A CPU(system) need to reduce the instruction processing latency and improve throughput.
Which is what precisely measured in TrueBench.
- Multi-OS support? Multi-OS support will contaminate the results. Hence it is strictly supported only on Linux platform.
- How reliable is TrueBench? If you are a systems engineer you know that no test in this world is perfect.
But if we consider an end-user experience of a given product(or device) for a specific task(an app). Then we need a mechanism to compare
multiple hardware devices and available multiple hardware platforms (x86, ARM, MIPS, etc). The code is the same. Unfortunately during
cross-compilation things will change and on top kernel tuning matters. But the point remains clear. For this set amount of load/task how
much time will it take to complete on that device. For the end-user the user-experience matters he/she may little care about the hardware
platform in most of the cases.
