I get a simple benchmark score from Windows Experience Index. Its Windows based. Is there anything similar in Linux?

It should be able to benchmark on

  1. Memory
  2. Disk
  3. Graphics
  4. Network
  5. ... Something else?

And obviously it should be free or open source. Or at least the benchmarks I am seeking must be available on trial version.

I'm disappointed this question is closed. I use sysbench in Linux for this all the time. – Dustin Kirkland Feb 22 '12 at 17:41

Read the web page, it lists the features and why you would want to use it. It's clearly explained. – chickenkiller Dec 22 '11 at 10:00
Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – Tom Wijsman Jul 14 '12 at 15:18
