Tendermint blockchain benchmarking tool: https://github.com/tendermint/tools/tree/master/tm-bench

For example, the following:

tm-bench -T 10 -r 1000 localhost:46657

will output:

Stats             Avg        Stdev      Max
Block latency     6.18ms     3.19ms     14ms
Blocks/sec        0.828      0.378      1
Txs/sec           963        493        1811

Quick Start

Docker

docker run -it --rm -v "/tmp:/tendermint" tendermint/tendermint:0.12.1 init
docker run -it --rm -v "/tmp:/tendermint" -p "46657:46657" --name=tm tendermint/tendermint:0.12.1

docker run -it --rm --link=tm tendermint/bench tm:46657

Binaries

If Linux, start with:

curl -L https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/tendermint/0.12.1/tendermint_linux_amd64.zip && sudo unzip -d /usr/local/bin tendermint_linux_amd64.zip && sudo chmod +x tendermint

if Mac OS, start with:

curl -L https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/tendermint/0.12.1/tendermint_darwin_amd64.zip && sudo unzip -d /usr/local/bin tendermint_darwin_amd64.zip && sudo chmod +x tendermint

then run:

tendermint init
tendermint node --proxy_app=dummy

tm-bench localhost:46657

with the last command being in a seperate window.
