BogoMips (from “bogus” and MIPS) is an unscientific measurement of CPU speed made by the Linux kernel when it boots, to calibrate an internal busy-loop.[1] An oft-quoted definition of the term is “the number of million times per second a processor can do absolutely nothing.”[2][3]


BogoMips can be used to see whether it is in the proper range for the particular processor, its clock frequency, and the potentially present CPU cache. It is not usable for performance comparison between different CPUs.[4]  

         BogoMips 是在linux启动的时候,通过测定内部忙循环的方式,来评价CPU速度的一种不科学的方法,


BogoMips 主要用来查看CPU的频率,是否在特定的范围,以及暗示这CPU cache的存在.但是这个指标,是不适合做不同CPU之间性能比较的.
