At the end of execution (or if ctrl+c interrupts the loop), a summary of the number of success and failure is outputted. This summary can be deactivated with --no-stat option.

loop can easily be used with time:

  • Generate random_time: bash $ dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/null bs=1 count=1024 status=none
  • Loop for 1000 iteration generating random data: bash $ loop --iter 1000 --no-stat dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/null bs=1 count=1024 status=none
  • How much time is needed: bash $ time loop --iter 1000 --no-stat dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/null bs=1 count=1024 status=none loop --iter 1000 --no-stat dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/null bs=1 count=1024 0.60s user 1.05s system 95% cpu 1.723 total

Another example with hurl to perform tests on HTTP endpoints:

$ loop --while-ok hurl test.hurl
...
hurl total: 140 ok: 139 ko: 1
