Setup Filebench on Solaris for benchmarking

Like any other newbie on Solaris, I didn’t know how to install the packages, I am used to yum or apt-get install but anyway on Solaris I did:

Giovanni@server:~/Downloads/filebench-1.4.8# pkg install SUNWfilebench
DOWNLOAD                                    PKGS       FILES     XFER (MB)
Completed                                    1/1       60/60     0.32/0.32

PHASE                                        ACTIONS
Install Phase                                  82/82
Giovanni@server:~/Downloads/filebench-1.4.8#

and it was installed 🙂 Use pkg search to search for packages.

Giovanni@server:/usr/benchmarks/filebench# bin/go_filebench
