The column, “Benchmarks for LAN Performance Evaluation,” by Larry Press (Aug. 1988, pp. 1014-1017) presented a technique for quickly benchmarking the performance of LANs in an office environment. Our interest was peaked since office automation is growing in importance. As a result, an empirical analysis of the Press benchmark programs was conducted. The results indicated that these benchmarking programs were appropriate for the benchmarking of LANs in an office environment.
