Most new users will be interested in a command line pattern that looks very much like this:
./eb... run type=stdout alias=test1 yaml=mystmts cycles=5M -v
This is basically telling EngineBlock to load an activity type known as stdout, naming it test1, with an input interval between 0 (inclusive) and 5000000 (exclusive), with statements and any other settings loaded from the file test1.yaml, using the the Standard YAML. This is a very common usage pattern for tools based on EngineBlock.
If you wanted to
crank up the concurrency and thread-level work size for speed, you could add
stride=1000 respectively. This would tell EngineBlock to
also use 100 threads for this activity, with each thread taking 1000 cycle
values at a time before going back to the input for the next set of cycle values
to iterate on.
