Novabench Command-line Interface (CLI) is available for Windows and Mac (non-Mac App Store version).
It is included exclusively with the Novabench Pro upgrade.

The CLI provides access to most of Novabench's benchmark tests, outputing results in either human-readable or machine-readable formats. The CLI allows easy scripting or remote access (e.g. SSH) to Novabench tests.
