Phoromatic Tracker Strides Forward

,----[ Quote ]
| Following in the success of the Phoronix 
| Test Suite, last month we launched 
| Phoromatic as a remote test management 
| system targeted for enterprise users of the 
| Phoronix Test Suite that allows the 
| automatic scheduling of tests, remote 
| installation of new tests, and the 
| management of multiple test systems all 
| through an intuitive, easy-to-use web 
| interface.


Fedora 13 Alpha Benchmarks

,----[ Quote ]
| We fired up the Phoronix Test Suite to run 
| the LAME MP3 encoding, 7-Zip compression, 
| LZMA compression, PostMark, Unpacking the 
| Linux kernel, John The Ripper, 
| GraphicsMagick, and the Bullet Physics 
| Engine. As Fedora 13 still has a ways to go 
| before its release and there are debugging 
| options enabled within the alpha build as 
| well as other development packages, its 
| system performance now is not the same as it 
| will be in May once it is officially 
| released. With that said, we are publishing 
| these graphs as-is for those interested in 
| comparing Fedora 13 Alpha to the past 
| releases or to Ubuntu 10.04.


Desktops and their performance

,----[ Quote ]
| Phoronix has used its Test Suite to compare the 
| memory and power consumption of different 
| desktop environments. However, the results 
| should be handled with care.
| The "Power & Memory Usage" test was done to 
| evaluate whether XFCE and LXDE consume less 
| power and memory compared with their "big" 
| siblings KDE and Gnome. The tests were done on 
| a stock Ubuntu installation. At first glance 
| the results suggest that KDE consumes much more 
| power than the others. However, these results 
| are misleading.



Linux 2.6.24 Through Linux 2.6.33 Benchmarks

,----[ Quote ]
| At Phoronix we have been benchmarking the
| Linux kernel on a daily basis using
| Phoromatic Tracker, a sub-component of
| Phoromatic and the Phoronix Test Suite. We
| launched our first system in the Linux kernel
| testing farm just prior to the Linux 2.6.33
| kernel development cycle and found a number
| of notable regressions during the past three
| months. Now with the Linux 2.6.34 kernel
| development cycle getting into swing, we have
| added an additional two systems to our daily
| kernel benchmarking farm. One of the systems
| is an Atom Z520 system but what makes it more
| interesting is that the system is using a
| Btrfs file-system and then the second new
| system added to the kernel tracker is a 64-
| bit setup. However, to provide a historical
| look at the Linux kernel performance, we have
| ran some fresh benchmarks going back to the
| Linux 2.6.24 kernel and ending with the
| recently released Linux 2.6.33 kernel.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
