Karma Linux is a Linux distribution for deterministic application performance evaluation. It has been successfully used in a Computer Engineering Processor Design and Configuration Assessment course at the University of Cordoba.
The evaluation of performance is driven by GLPerfex, a graphical tool that provides access to a set of performance counters—using the PAPI library —and allows the task to have exclusive use of the CPU—using RTAI . As a result, the system provides a deterministic environment to perform a non intrusive evaluation of applications.
GLPerfex and LPerfex are free software under the GNU GPL v3 license.
