There's a program we are using for benchmarking our web apps that is called Sbench. Its help page shows:

FAST - Sbench 2.0.0.beta1 - 2008-09-13 redhat3-i686
PLATFORM   : linux2 / posix

However I cannot find any information about it on the web. It is producing two output files, one called .summary and one .video, but I have no idea what their format is and how they can be opened.

Any ideas what this program is?

Try to check the installation information. Do you know if the program was installed via RPM? It looks like it was distributed as a binary, though.

Try: rpm -qf /path/to/Sbench, where you give the full path to the Sbench executable.

You may not be able to find more information. It could be a utility that was developed in-house, for instance.
