SPB Server Performance Benchmark


The Server Performance Benchmark (SPB) mission was put together to benchmark dedicated server performance (Server FPS).

SPB offers a fully an autopilot function, fully automated test scripts that can be configured in the mission parameters (at mission start/slot selection).
If the tester does not wish to use the autopilot function, one can test manually. The tester can spawn up to 500 AI Bluefor units and Opfor squad to simulate combat situations. After each Bluefor group spawn a report is generated:

* Displayed on screen (hint)
* Copied to the clipboard (comma delimited)
* Inserted into the Server RPT file

Mission content:
The SPB Vanilla version uses no addon's and runs with Arma III Vanilla. Make sure that you configure the server as Vanilla and instruct the clients to join the SPB mission with a Vanilla profile (no addon's).

CBA / A.C.R.E.

The SPB CBA/A.C.R.E. version is dependent on CBA A3/A.C.R.E. (and Jay's ArmaLib A3). Other than the required addon's, the SPB CBA/A.C.R.E. is the same as SPB Vanilla.

Extract the .pbo file(s) to your Steam/SteamApps/common/ArmA 3/MPMissions folder.

SPB mission parameters:
You can configure several mission parameters:

* Day or Night. When selecting 'Day' time is set to 12:00 hrs (noon). When selecting night time is et to 00:00 hrs (midnight).
* Expert Mode. Disables to instructions screens at the beginning of the mission. You'll jump right into the benchmarking feature.
* SPB Autopilot config (see 'Automated Benchmarking using the Autopilot test scripts' for more information)

See SPB_readme.pdf for more detailed information and benchmarking instructions.
