I wanted to know as how the "GeekBench 4.2.3" for Android can be run from the adb command line using the "Activity manager". Could anyone please provide me the complete command line to run the GeekBench using adb shell?

    I'm afraid that we don't have a script for running Geekbench from ADB on hand that we could provide. It would likely require getting the screen contents as XML and simulating taps or other gestures, or calling into a third-party tool to perform similar functions. What kind of use case do you have where you'd like to run Geekbench with ADB?

    Hi Colin,
    Thanks for the quick reply and info. Could you please help me answer below queries :-

    1. Even if i would try to simulate the run of GeekBench, then how would i capture the output? Is there a way to redirect the o/p to some text format and save it in a file? If yes, could you please tell me how?

    2. I have previously used GeekBench on Linux, which is a simple command with section and workload parameters. I hope that even in Android the logic is to invoke this binary and run it with specific section and workload params. If my understanding is right, is there a way to invoke this command in Android?

    Since i don't have the access to the target display, I have to rely upon the other workarounds.
