#!/bin/bash -
#===============================================================================
#
#          FILE:  benchmark.sh
#
#         USAGE:  ./benchmark.sh
#
#   DESCRIPTION:  Benchmark the CPU

add ()
{
    COUNTER=0
    exec 2>&1
    time=$(exec 2>&1;(time while [[  $COUNTER -lt 100000 ]]; do ((COUNTER++)) \
        ; done))
    echo "Time for 100000 additions is "$time
}	# ----------  end of function add  ----------
mul ()
{
    COUNTER=0
    test=2
    exec 2>&1
    time=$(exec 2>&1;(time while [[  $COUNTER -lt 100000 ]]; do ((COUNTER++)) \
        ; ((test=test*2));done))
    echo "Time for 100000 mul is "$time
}	# ----------  end of function add  ----------
div ()
{
    COUNTER=0
    test=1000000000000
    exec 2>&1
    time=$(exec 2>&1;(time while [[  $COUNTER -lt 100000 ]]; do ((COUNTER++)) \
        ; (( test=test/2)); done)|tr -d '\n')
    echo "Time for 100000 divisions is "${time}
}	# ----------  end of function add  ----------

time add
time mul
time div

And here is the output :

Time for 100000 additions is  real 0m1.166s user 0m1.089s sys 0m0.074s

real    0m1.168s
