I want to report performance statistics about an algorithm that runs on a virtual server instance with Ubuntu on it. I measured runtime and maximum memory usage but I want to give a statement about the CPU speed as I feel the runtime is meaningless without. However,
lshw just gives me the following information about the CPU:
description: CPU product: QEMU Virtual CPU version 1.0 vendor: Hynix Semiconductor (Hyundai Electronics) physical id: 401 bus info: cpu@0 slot: CPU 1 size: 2GHz capacity: 2GHz width: 64 bits capabilities: fpu fpu_exception wp de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush mmx fxsr sse sse2 syscall nx x86-64 nopl pni cx16 popcnt hypervisor lahf_lm svm abm sse4a
How shall I summarize my environment? "Tested on a 2 GHz virtual server instance."? I feel like clock speed is not sufficient in modern environments as it is stagnating for years.
