How to benchmark a software's performance

http://askubuntu.com – How can I benchmark the performance of a particular software not complete system? I know various tools are available for system benchmarking. But I want to benchmark the performance of a particular software for example truecrypt. I want to know what time and cpu usage does different operations (like encryption, decryption, mounting, reading and writing of files etc.) in truecrypt takes. I want to do this to compare the performances of different software. Can someone suggest a open source tool or any tool for linux platform that can do this? Thanks, (HowTos)
