I like the idea of a script.. at least for most of it. The one bugaboo
will be doing start up and shut down tests. Maybe we could use an
appropriate signal? I'm not sure which one would be used to cleanly
shutdown the program, but, for example, with SIGTERM we could do:
kill -n 15 $(pidof firefox)
kill -n 15 $(pidof chromium-browse)
We need to know what systems these are being run on.
We need to use new/fresh profiles.
firefox -CreateProfile foo && firefox -P foo <space separated list of
URLs to be opened in tabs>
chromium-browser --user-data-dir=foo <space separated list of URLs to be
opened in tabs>
One problem with this is that Chromium defaults to loading a choice of
search engines.. so it's not technically "started up."
It IS important we use as many tabs as reasonable. There tends to be a
bit of diversion in performance between browsers depending on the number
of tabs opened.
As for getting resource usage, I'm thinking that a good solution would
be to use proc. Rather than try to follow a moving target (e.g. lxtask),
something more static might be useful:
cat /proc/$(pidof firefox)
cat /proc/$(pidof chromium-browse)
