Open Posix benchmark suite ( is designed to test whether an operating system respects the standard of POSIX. It is an open source test suite with the goal of performing conformance, functional, stress, and performance testing of the functions described in the IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 System Interfaces specification. The test suite will be developed independent of particular implementations of the POSIX APIs. It is configurable to test any implementation by specifying include and library information. The purpose of this benchmark suite is the creation of tests that depend purely on POSIX APIs, thus leaving open the possibility of OS independence, although initial development is on Linux. NetBSD is one of these major stream operating systems. Thus, it would be cool if we can use this suite to test NetBSD, which also drives the evolvement of operating systems.
