x-fontperf is a small utility to measure font rendering/loading time in an x11 environment. Originally intended to see if there is any notable performance difference between a separate font server and local font rendering. It actually does three different tests: 1) Loading the same font several times Gives you an average loading time for this particular font. If you use a font already in use in your x-session this should be really quick as this font will be reused and not actually loaded again (cached) 2) Loading the same font in different sizes (incrementing) Default is from 6 to 144 pixel. Interesting to see how rendering time increases with font size (see option -v) 3) Loading all available fonts This should give you a good estimate on average fontloading time. Also a good test to stress your system and check if all fonts are loadable (see option -e) Sample output: x-fontperf -v x-fontperf: Copyright (c) Holger Pfaff - x-fontperf: version 1.1 from 26-Mar-2004 x-fontperf: connected to server: :0.0 x-fontperf: server vendor: Gentoo Linux (XFree86 4.3.0, revision r3) x-fontperf: vendor release: 40300000 x-fontperf: total of 6406 fonts found x-fontperf: basefont: -*-helvetica-*-*-*-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1 x-fontperf: loading basefont 100 times ... 6292 usec 62 usec/font x-fontperf: loading font from pixel size 6 to 144 ... 2977820 usec 21578 usec/font x-fontperf: loading all 6406 available fonts ... 34965472 usec 5458 usec/font Usage: Usage: x-fontperf ... -display X-display to use -v Increase verbosity (may falsify results) -e Show errors during tests -n Number of iterations for test 1 [100] -min Minimum pixel size for test 2 [6] -max Maximum pixel size for test 2 [144] -foundry Foundry of font [*] -family Family of font [helvetica] -weight Weight of font [*] -slant Slant of font [*] -setwidth Set width of font [*] -addstyle Additional style of font [*] -pixelsize Pixel size of font [12] -pointsize Point size of font [*] -resolutionX X resolution of font [*] -resolutionY Y resolution of font [*] -spacing Spacing of font [*] -avgwidth Average width of font [*] -registry Registry of font [iso8859] -encoding Encoding of font [1] Verbosity can be increased in three steps by specifying -v several times. No- tation -vvv is not supported. Use -v -v -v. Errors opening fonts are not shown by default. Use -e to see them. -n specifies the number of iterations for test 1. The default of 100 (shown in brackets) should be ok for most systems. Increase/decrease values for fast/slow systems -min/-max specifies the minimum/maximum pixel size for test 2. Pixel sizes are incremented by one. The last block of arguments is for specifying the basefont to use for tests 1 and 2. These follow the standard x11 font naming scheme. Again: defaults are shown in brackets. Whats New in This Release: - first public version 1.0.
