The BenchIT-Core is the part of BenchIT that is necessary to setup BenchIT and do measurements.

Folder structure

When you list all the files in the main-directory, you'll get the following picture:

The Localdefs consist of 3 files containing measurement options and information about the system BenchIT runs on. They are automatically created when you first start BenchIT and can be modified by the user. More information can be found here


A kernel is basically the test funktion used for the measurement. More information can be found here


The interface is used for the interaction of the BenchIT-Core and the kernel


Some tools are provided to make using BenchIT easier.
