How can I stress test my Raspberry Pi

I wrote the little command-line tool stressberry the other day which stresses your Raspberry, measures the core temperature, and produces nice plots. Install with pip install stressberry --user and ...

How can I stress test my Raspberry Pi

For the CPU and most other things you can use nice -19 stress-ng -c 4 --metrics --timeout 60s For the GPU they suggest GeeXLab at geeks3d.com.

How fast can GPIO pins toggle?

If you want to synchronously transmit data at 50MHz frequency (that's how I read "pins to be toggled on the schedule of a ~50 mhz FPGA clock"), you will absolutely need to use the same clock source ...

Benchmark on one machine too extreme

Running that command to bench your RPi is not so acurate. That command will burn 1/4 cores of your Pi, thats why you get weirds results. Try to activate all 4 cores at 100%. I coded a small benchmark ...

Benchmarking SD cards, read speed is identical

There are several factors to consider, not just card speed. As one person as stated, the Raspberry Pi could be the bottle neck, yet that could be its hardware, or software driver. Be advised, I'm ...

Pi 4 performance against x86 - CI/CD server with Java/Maven

Jenkins and Maven by themselves don't consume any significant CPU time. You need to profile specific implementations of the compilers you're going to use. If you're interested in GCC and don't have a ...

Benchmark on one machine too extreme

For what it's worth, I just ran that same test on a stock Raspberry Pi 3B running Raspbian Jessie and it completed in 24.3 seconds. It took 73.4 s on a Model B rev 2 running Wheezy. Unless you have ...

Can I use Raspberry pi as NAS with Raid 1 and encrypted file systems?

I expect this can be made to 'work' (you will need 4 x USB-SATA 'dongles'), however throughput will be hopelessly slow ... All 4 USB ports & Etrhernet (on the B+ or a A/B with external Hub) are ...
