speed — test library performance

Synopsis

openssl speed [-help] [-engine id] [-elapsed] [-evp algo] [-decrypt] [algorithm...]

Description

This command is used to test the performance of cryptographic algorithms. To see the list of supported algorithms, use the list --digest-commands or list --cipher-commands command.

Options

-help
Print out a usage message.
-engine id
specifying an engine (by its unique id string) will cause speed to attempt to obtain a functional reference to the specified engine, thus initialising it if needed. The engine will then be set as the default for all available algorithms.
-elapsed
Measure time in real time instead of CPU time. It can be useful when testing speed of hardware engines.
-evp algo
Use the specified cipher or message digest algorithm via the EVP interface.
-decrypt
Time the decryption instead of encryption. Affects only the EVP testing.
[zero or more test algorithms]
If any options are given, speed tests those algorithms, otherwise all of the above are tested.
