I find it interesting that nearly every version of OpenSSL for the past
  five years will report "inf" performance on one of my sparc units :

$ /usr/local/bin/openssl version
OpenSSL 1.1.0g  2 Nov 2017

$ /usr/local/bin/openssl speed rsa1024
Doing 1024 bit private rsa's for 10s: 28 1024 bit private RSA's in 0.00s
Doing 1024 bit public rsa's for 10s: 1964 1024 bit public RSA's in 0.00s
OpenSSL 1.1.0g  2 Nov 2017
built on: reproducible build, date unspecified
options:bn(64,32) rc4(char) des(int) aes(partial) idea(int) blowfish(ptr)
compiler: /opt/solarisstudio12.4/bin/cc -DDSO_DLFCN -DHAVE_DLFCN_H 
-DPOLY1305_ASM -DOPENSSLDIR="\"/usr/local/ssl\"" 
                   sign    verify    sign/s verify/s
rsa 1024 bits 0.000000s 0.000000s      Inf      Inf

I always find that interesting.
