System benchmark tests of LXDE with lmbench suite.

Penk from the LXDE core team in Taiwan has done a lxde system benchmark test using the lmbench suite.

lmbench is a suite of simple, portable ANSI/C microbenchmarks for UNIX/POSIX. In general, it measures two key features: latency and bandwidth. It is intended to give system developers insight into basic costs of key operations. (http://freshmeat.net/projects/lmbench/)

The results can be seen in the test file here: lxde-benchmark

More benchmark tests can be done with tools from the Linux Benchmark Suite: http://lbs.sourceforge.net
