Gcrypt Library

Libgcrypt is a general purpose cryptographic library developed as part of the GnuPG project. This is a benchmark of libgcrypt's integrated benchmark and is measuring the time to run the benchmark command with a cipher/mac/hash repetition count set for 50 times as simple, high level look at the overall crypto performance of the system under test.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark gcrypt.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Gcrypt Library 1.10.3

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 111 public results since 7 June 2024 with the latest data as of 15 July 2024.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.

Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (Gcrypt Library 1.10.3) has an average run-time of 12 minutes. By default this test profile is set to run at least 3 times but may increase if the standard deviation exceeds pre-defined defaults or other calculations deem additional runs necessary for greater statistical accuracy of the result.
