    Well, due to the overwhelming response recently for a PTS GUI, I have made the decision to commit a preview of the GTK interface for Phoronix Test Suite 1.8. A early version of the GUI will be committed this week to Git.


    ... and there's a teaser Feedback on the UI will be welcome.

      I have just pushed some early code for the GTK2 GUI to Git.

      To launch the GUI, run: phoronix-test-suite gui. The PHP GTK module (http://gtk.php.net/) module is required for support. Unfortunately, not many distributions have packaged PHP GTK, yet.

      There's still a lot to be hooked in, but you can start looking at basic information, system information, and other items through the interface.

        Looks good so far. This is shaping up to be THE benchmarking software. Not just on Linux, but period.

          I tried php-gtk from here:

          http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/p/php-gtk/

          Even updated the package to 2.0.1 for testing. GUI does not start. What is wrong? Do you use the gtk1 module?

            Nope, I am using the GTK2 module and everything. Let's debug this problem on IRC.

              Ubuntu

              It would be nice if Ubuntu added PTS somewhere to Application menu by default. Currently I don't see any straightforward way on Ubuntu Desktop to display basic system info, let alone do some performance checks (without going to CLI).

                  I would love for Phoronix Test Suite to appear on the Ubuntu ISO, but realistically that is unlikely it would occur since it means php-cli would also then need to be spun with Ubuntu, etc.

                  Below is the visual system information area for it right now (as of what's in Git as 7PM EST, it could easily change soon, even today):

                    Well, its this system which helps you automatically compile a whole software from source code and make a package with all dependencies auto-installed.

                    But I think for Phoronix Suite which has binary apps like Urban Terror which is not Open Source, this won't be applicable

                    Is there a single .tar.gz version of Phoronix Test Suite which contains ALL apps along with a launcher, which does not download anything from the internet to install ? I would really appriciate it if it exists. That can enable making a package out of phoronix test suite in a way similar to the way Adobe Flash Player is installed - it downloads from thenet and extracts the files.

                      No. That package would be over 10GB+ in size and rarely any users would ever use all of the tests found within the Phoronix Test Suite. But even a package of just the most common test files would be unlikely since I am strapped for server resources and bandwidth.
