I'm using ncpu to simulate cpu workload on LPARs in order to test and validate the capacity planning tools and analysis method.
It should be great if you can add a feature to print out a timestamp and the count of transactions (loops,operation or whatever) at the and of ncpu execution.
# ./tools/ncpu -p 2 -z 90 -s 10
./tools/ncpu - processes=2 snooze=90% hibernate=0 secs for 10 seconds

# ./tools/ncpu -p 2 -z 80 -s 10
./tools/ncpu - processes=2 snooze=80% hibernate=0 secs for 10 seconds

Do you think this is feasible?
