Phoromatic Tracker Launches To Monitor Linux Performance

,----[ Quote ]
| Last month Phoromatic went into public beta, 
| which is our remote test management software 
| for the Phoronix Test Suite that allows a 
| wealth of possibilities including the ability 
| to easily build a benchmarking test farm. 



The Phoronix Kernel Test Farm Is Alive

,----[ Quote ]
| The first step of that new endeavor is the
| Phoronix kernel test farm. As of this morning,
| the first system -- of hopefully many to come
| -- is online and operational. At least one
| more system should also go online this week in
| time for the Linux 2.6.33 merge window. These
| test systems are to automatically install the
| latest Linux kernel every morning (using the
| code from the Linus Git tree) and then they
| spend the day running benchmarks. With the set
| of tests currently being run, the testing
| process for each kernel every day runs for 13
| to 14 hours! There are more than 50 tests
| being run through the Phoronix Test Suite and
| they include multiple disk, ray-tracing,
| computational biology, server, compression,
| audio/video encoding, physics, cryptography,
| and tests representing many other areas of
| interest. Results are then uploaded to
| Phoromatic automatically from this Linux test
| farm (temporarily being built out of my living
| room, actually).

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
