  • See: for example. Do some serious benchmarking from the commandline. This will write to a file with the time it took to compress n bytes to the file (increasing by 1). Run: gnuplot -persist <(echo "plot 'lzma' with lines, 'gzip' with lines, 'bzip2' with lines") To see it in graph form.

    for a in bzip2 lzma gzip;do echo -n>$a;for b in $(seq 0 256);do dd if=/dev/zero of=$ bs=$b count=1;c=$(date +%s%N);$a $;d=$(date +%s%N);total=$(echo $d-$c|bc);echo $total>>$a;rm $ *.bz2 *.lzma *.gz;done;done

  • # 4 cores with 2500 pi digits CPUBENCH 4 2500 . every core will use 100% cpu and you can see how fast they calculate it. if you do 50000 digitits and more it can take hours or days Show Sample Output

    CPUBENCH() { local CPU="${1:-1}"; local SCALE="${2:-5000}"; { for LOOP in `seq 1 $CPU`; do { time echo "scale=${SCALE}; 4*a(1)" | bc -l -q | grep -v ^"[0-9]" & } ; done }; echo "Cores: $CPU"; echo "Digit: $SCALE" ;}

  • You could have that little benchmark run on all cores in parallel, as a multi-core benchmark or stress test First find the number of cores, then have parallel iterate over that in, well, parallel Show Sample Output

    time cat /proc/cpuinfo |grep proc|wc -l|xargs seq|parallel -N 0 echo "2^2^20" '|' bc

  • Broken in two parts, first get the number of cores with cat /proc/cpuinfo |grep proc|wc -l and create a integer sequence with that number (xargs seq), then have GNU parallel loop that many times over the given command. Cheers! Show Sample Output

    time cat /proc/cpuinfo |grep proc|wc -l|xargs seq|parallel -N 0 echo "scale=4000\; a\(1\)\*4" '|' bc -l

What's this? is the place to record those command-line gems that you return to again and again. That way others can gain from your CLI wisdom and you from theirs too. All commands can be commented on, discussed and voted up or down.

Show when filesystem was created
Knowing when a filesystem is created , you can deduce when an operating system was installed . find filesystem device (/dev/) informations by using the cat /etc/fstab command.

Plaintext credentials sniffing with tcpdump and grep
Simple TCPDUMP grepping for common unsafe protocols (HTTP, POP3, SMTP, FTP)

Rename files in batch

Email HTML content

Find usb device in realtime
Using this command you can track a moment when usb device was attached.

First pass dvd rip... The set of commands was too long, so I had to separate them into two.
This set of commands will rip a dvd title using a 2 pass mencoder xvid encode. It will provide a great quality rip. It will rip as close to 700MB as possible. (note the bitrate of -700000) Enjoy!

Which processes are listening on a specific port (e.g. port 80)
swap out "80" for your port of interest. Can use port number or named ports e.g. "http"

Hiding and Show files on Mac OS X
These commands will mark a file as hidden or visible to Mac OS X Finder. Notice the capitol V vs the lowercase v. This will also work for directories. setfile -a V; // This marks the file invisible setfile -a v; // This marks the file visible I have also found that adding the following aliases are helpful: alias hide='setfile -a V' alias show='setfile -a v'

shell bash iterate number range with for loop
Bash's arithmetic evaluation.
