There are thousands of such scripts available; most of them are pretty trivial, but if you dig deep enough you can find some good ones.

Industry has long attached IP and commercial benefit strings to research funding; however, there has been an increasing realization that the approach is flawed and not very scientific, particularly when it comes to open source, said Portland State University Associate Professor Bart Massey. In open source software development, the resulting product can often be the research itself.
Performance testing is usually left for last in the application development cycle -- not because it's unimportant, but because it's hard to test effectively with so many unknown variables.
