Caldera has announced that they are making Suites VII and IX of the AIM benchmarks available under the GPL. The Suites are now available to the community via download. The project will also be available on SourceForge soon.
The AIM benchmark technology has proved useful for more than a decade in measuring performance of hardware and versions of the Unix operating system. The benchmarks were licensed by nearly all of the vendors of Unix system hardware. More than 70 companies used these benchmarks to compare and tune products. In addition, because of the stressful multidimensional nature of the AIM workload many OS and hardware vendors have used the benchmarks as part of their quality assurance process.
