The MicroStation Benchmark is mdl application designed to gauge how well MicroStation V8i SELECTseries 3 and later will perform on your computer. Several tests are run to evaluate not only graphics performance but also Disk I/O and CPU performance. All results are shown in seconds and are a measure of the total time to complete a given task.
NOTE: We recommend that you do not use your computer for other activities until all of the tests are complete the entire test will like take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to complete. You may want to wait and run the test over lunch or overnight. Also having many background processing task running could affect your result, especially if the other applications are consuming a considerable amount of memory.
Options are analyze, category and test. Choosing analyze will run all test and allow you to generate a report upon completion. The report cannot optionally be uploaded to Bentley at this time and added to a database such that other users can view your results and share theirs with the user community. An example report is shown below.
Choosing category will open an additional Select Test by Category dialog.
From here you can simply select the category or multi-select categories that you want to run and the click on the Run Test button.
When the tests are complete you can then Generate a local report or submit one to Bentley.
Choosing tests will open the Select Test.
From here you can simply select the design file(s) or multi-select test(s) that you want to run and then click on the Run Test button. With the exception of save image multiple the first name in brackets is the design file or model used for the test followed by the name or type of test performed.
Monochrome with Shadows,Thematic Height and Thematic Slope are all display styles used to test graphics performance.
Once the test are complete you will need to generate a local report, the option to upload is not currently enabled. Feel free to share your results with the community using this thread.
in the delivered results with the Benchmark I am wondering, why did You run Your HP Z800 Workstation with a clock Speed of only 2095 Mhz instead of the Maximum of 3326 Mhz ?
Attached is our Benchmark.
