Rx is more of a computer systems test rather than a SW's test. From the description;
The performance test pushes your computer hard and geared toward the comparison of CPU performance.
I'm pretty sure our hardware is ok. What I want to find out is.
1) Effect of different settings in the OS
2) Effect of different settings in SW
3) Effect of different approaches to modeling
a) Detail level
d) old versions
My goal would be to have a macro that would open one of our large assemblies, do some number of manipulations and then close it. Add up the time and take note of it. I'd then go in and make some system changes, run again. Return back, make some SW changes, run...and so on.
By doing that I can tell where we would see the largest gains and what is causing the most issues.
