Geekbench has become the go-to benchmark method among the tech people because of its availability on almost any platform out there. As the Geekbench official web site says
Geekbench provides a comprehensive set of benchmarks engineered to quickly and accurately measure processor and memory performance. Designed to make benchmarks easy to run and easy to understand, Geekbench takes the guesswork out of producing robust and reliable benchmark results.
As linux user you might want to run the benchmark on your linux dedicated server, VPS or even on your linux computer. And on this guide I’m going to explain how you can do it.

This download link is from the geekbench web site. Geekbench 2.4.0 is the latest version of geekbench at the time or writing. You can go to http://www.primatelabs.com/geekbench/download/linux/ to check the latest available geekbench software and make the changes to download link accordingly.
After downloading run this command to decompress the file
Then when it finishes, We need to move in to the decompressed directory, run this

When it says
key from your email receipt with the following command line:
