benchfax utility hangs at random places.

Postby blkline » Tue Jul 21, 2009 1:08 pm

I'm trying to install my first channel of FAX. When I run the benchfax utility, I get to various stages and then the program simply hangs. There is no excessive CPU utilization and the benchfax program readily responds to ^C.

The version of benchfax version I'm using is 1.0.7. I heard tell of a newer version, 1.0.10, but I have been unable to find it. I'm running CentOS5, on an IBM x3250, with dual Xeon 1.6G processors.

In my last test, I got this far (the farthest along so far):

[root@corp-asterisk ~]# ./benchfax
benchfax version 1.0.7

included in this program.

Running test using CCITT FAX test page, US letter size, 204x196 resolution, MMR encoding, ECM enabled and V.17 (14.4kbps) modem

NOTE: Each individual test could take 20 seconds or longer; be patient.
Test run 1 for flavor 'i686' used 632 milliseconds of CPU time.
Test run 2 for flavor 'i686' used 604 milliseconds of CPU time.
Test run 3 for flavor 'i686' used 656 milliseconds of CPU time.
Test run 4 for flavor 'i686' used 207 milliseconds of CPU time.
Test run 5 for flavor 'i686' used 624 milliseconds of CPU time.
Test run 1 for flavor 'pentium3m' used 232 milliseconds of CPU time.
Test run 2 for flavor 'pentium3m' used 668 milliseconds of CPU time.
Test run 3 for flavor 'pentium3m' used 651 milliseconds of CPU time.
Test run 4 for flavor 'pentium3m' used 641 milliseconds of CPU time.

Test run 2 for flavor 'prescott' used 672 milliseconds of CPU time.
Test run 3 for flavor 'prescott' used 737 milliseconds of CPU time.
Test run 4 for flavor 'prescott' used 665 milliseconds of CPU time.
Test run 5 for flavor 'prescott' used 649 milliseconds of CPU time.
Beginning test run 1 of 5 for flavor 'nocona'...

Is there a newer version of this software and can anyone give me an indication if they, too, have had this problem and what they did to get past it.

Thanks!
