NAME
       ods-hsmspeed - OpenDNSSEC HSM speed tester

SYNOPSIS
       ods-hsmspeed [-c	config]	-r repository [-i iterations] [-s keysize] [-t
       threads]

DESCRIPTION
       The ods-hsmspeed	utility	is part	of OpenDNSSEC and can be used to  test
       the performance of the configured HSMs.

       The components of OpenDNSSEC do not talk	directly to the	HSMs, but uses
       an internal library called libhsm. It then  talks  to  the  HSMs	 using
       PKCS#11.	 The libhsm simplifies the process of creating keys and	signa-
       tures for the other components of OpenDNSSEC.

       ods-hsmspeed will measure the speed by using  the  libhsm.  The	result
       that you	get is somewhat	lower than what	the manufactures promises, be-
       cause the libhsm	creates	some overhead to the pure PKCS#11 environment.

OPTIONS
       -c config
	      Path to an OpenDNSSEC configuration file.

	      (defaults	to /usr/local/etc/opendnssec/conf.xml)

       -i iterations
	      Specify the number of iterations for signing an RRset.  A	higher
	      number of	iterations will	increase the performance.

	      (defaults	to 1 iteration)

       -r repository
	      The speed	test will be performed on this repository.

       -s keysize
	      A	 temporary  RSA	 key  with  the	given keysize will be used for
	      signing.

	      (defaults	to 1024	bit)

       -t threads
	      The number of threads to use.  Most HSMs will be utilized	better
	      with multiple threads.

	      (defaults	to 1 thread)
