  What is it that you're trying to benchmark?

  Usually benchmarking from outside you can only measure the performance as
a 'black box' entity.
  From outside you can measure cpu/mem/network/disk access performance, but
typically only as total figures not as per individual process.
  From inside you have more fine grained measurements, but not an accurate
measure of how it is taxing the underlying hardware.

  Depends what you want as to how you go about it.
  What do you want?
