Setting up a benchmark-environment for ClamWin

Hi guys,

Since there is a lot of discussion going on whether 0.88.1 is faster or not, i decided to set up a benchmark.

I have an Intel Celeron 800 Mhz box available on which Windows 2003 is running and that i only use for backups, so i think I'll create a partition there, stuff it with lots of different files, and test several versions of ClamWin on it.

Since I have no experience in benchmarking, any suggestions you have would be more then welcome.

I've had these ideas myself so far :

- In stead of scanning a partition, what about scanning a CD. That would always be the same cd (or set of CDs) which is good for the test, but would it be comparable to a hard drive scan ???
- Would it be a good idea to set up several test environments in Virtual PC ??? I see several advantages : I could test multiple platforms independent of the hardware, without saving the changes. Any disadvantages to this approach I'm missing ? (except for speed off course)

Give me you're thoughts on this,

budtse

a good benchmark test would be to scan C:\Windows which contains mostly binary files and then a folder with archives. Do the sdame scans with 0.88, 0.88.1-cygwin and 0.88.1-nocygwin
