AIM9 (reaim9)?

Any test suite will do that tests OS performance.

Latency will also be negatively impacted. There are already significant
regressions in recent kernel releases so many of us who are sensitive
to these issues just stick with old kernels (2.6.22 f.e.) and hope
that the upstream issues are worked out at some point.

There is also lldiag package in my directory. See

http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/christoph/lldiag

Try the latency test and the mcast test. Localhost multicast is typically
a good test for kernel performance.

There is also the page fault test that Kamezawa-san posted recently in the
thread where we tried to deal with the long term mmap_sem issues.
