Quick hack to benchmark Steam OS
# !!! IMPORTANT !!!
# This is just something I threw together when benchmarking my newly built
# Steam Machine, using the ASRock Q1900DC-ITX, don't expect it to work on
# anything else. For all I know it might not even work at all. This is my first
# time using rrdtool, and probably my second python script longer than 10 lines
# Check out my blog post for more info:
# The graphs in the post were generated using the following commands:
