This command is used to test the performance of cryptographic algorithms.
To see the list of supported algorithms, use the openssl_list
Print out a usage message.
specifying an engine (by its unique id string) will cause speed to attempt to obtain a functional reference to the specified engine, thus initialising it if needed. The engine will then be set as the default for all available algorithms.
When calculating operations- or bytes-per-second, use wall-clock time instead of CPU user time as divisor. It can be useful when testing speed of hardware engines.
Use the specified cipher or message digest algorithm via the EVP interface. If algo is an AEAD cipher, then you can pass
-aeadto benchmark a TLS-like sequence. And if algo is a multi-buffer capable cipher, e.g. aes-128-cbc-hmac-sha1, then -mbwill time multi-buffer operation. -decrypt
Time the decryption instead of encryption. Affects only the EVP testing.
A file or files containing random data used to seed the random number generator. Multiple files can be specified separated by an OS-dependent character. The separator is ; for MS-Windows, , for OpenVMS, and : for all others.
Writes random data to the specified file upon exit. This can be used with a subsequent
Generate a num-prime RSA key and use it to run the benchmarks. This option is only effective if RSA algorithm is specified to test.
Run benchmarks for num seconds.
Run benchmarks on num-byte buffers. Affects ciphers, digests and the CSPRNG.
- [zero or more test algorithms]
If any options are given, speed tests those algorithms, otherwise a pre-compiled grand selection is tested.
If any options are given, speed tests those algorithms, otherwise all of the above are tested.
