Cycles per byte (sometimes abbreviated cpb) is a unit of measurement which indicates the number of clock cycles a microprocessor will perform per byte (usually of octet size) of data processed in an algorithm. It is commonly used as a partial indicator of real-world performance in cryptographic functions.
