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. Feb 22, 2012 at 17:41

HardInfo is a system profiler and benchmark for Linux systems. It can gather information about your computer and operating system, perform a varitety of benchmarks, and export the data to HTML.


It is the first DirectX 11 benchmark in the world, the original version was released at the moment of Microsoft Windows 7 launch in October, 2009.
Operating system:
- MS Windows XP
- MS Windows Vista
- MS Windows 7
- GNU/Linux

But see ZDNet
