Hi guys,

Is there any way to run memory read/write ratio to 1:1, 2:1, and 3:1? Or memory read-only write-only?

Additionally, can I set an option like memory as sequential access or random access for the memory copy bandwidth test?

Thank you for your advice in advance.

Unfortunately stressapptest can't currently do these things. It would be a neat feature to have read/check threads available, and I'll try to look into adding them at some point.

Thanks a lot for your reply. By the way, it describes "-W" option as "FPU warms CPU while copying". It increases memory bandwidth, do you know how it works or any other detail info?

Depending on the system, "-W" will use SSE/Neon/vector to accelerate memory copy, which is probably what you have. If no vector instructions are available, it will linterleave floating point calculations with memory copy.
