Dhrystone
Last modified: Wednesday, May 23, 2001 

Developed in 1984 by R.P. Wecker, Dhrystone is a benchmark program written in C or Pascal (and now even in Java) that tests a system's integer performance. The program is CPU bound, performing no I/O functions or operating system calls.

Dhrystones per second is the metric used to measure the number of times the program can run in a second.
