  • A good test or suite - please

    I'd like to test my PC on which I installed Ubuntu 9.04 (Windows XP was first and I used Wubi for the Ubuntu).

    Could you indicate me a test or suite of tests which is useful for fully and completely testing all the parts of my PC ? Not a very long one, like less than a half of hour, and which doesn't require too much downloading of packages).

    maybe:

    phoronix-test-suite benchmark linux-system

    or

    phoronix-test-suite benchmark favorites

      thanks, but, for Ubuntu?

      Thank you for answering. Are those two tests good for Ubuntu 9.04? I have Ubuntu 9.04 installed (together with windows XP), I am new in Linux and don't want to destroy my PC.

        Yes, they will run just fine on Ubuntu. In fact, that's where I do nearly all of my development work. None of the tests should destroy your PC or damage it.

          OK, but what if Ubuntu was installed with Windows xp on the same PC?

          I have Ubuntu 9.04. I upgraded from Ubuntu 8.10. Ubuntu 8.10 was installed with Wubi installer, on a PC with Windows xp installed. Can I run your two tests from above in these circumstances? (My intention is to buy a laptop to work only with Ubuntu on it, meanwhile I'm learning how to test a system) Thanks. Elena

            That shouldn't matter at all. If it's Ubuntu, it will run.

              The two tests worked, but....

              They worked and the results are in the global phoronix at:

              http://global.phoronix-test-suite.co...6428-592-24181

              and

              http://global.phoronix-test-suite.co...65-17265-10463

              (Linux-system and favorites, respectively).

              1) Could you please have a look and tell me everything is ok? Lots of warnings and "could not found" appeared during the tests.

              2) Where could I find documentation in order to understand the results of these two tests?

              3) Are these two tests good for a laptop too? Or, there are specific tests for laptops?

              Thanks,
              Elena

                Those two suites should work just fine on laptops too.

                  Temperatures

                  Reading the results of the tests I couldn't see the temperatures of HDD, GPU, CPU or motherboard.

                  Are there some tough tests which also could show the temperatures of laptop's various components during the test ?

                    you can with any test.

                    Just run:

                    MONITOR=all phoronix-test-suite benchmark <the test>

                    but you must have supported LM_Sensors or ACPI on the motherboard to see most of the hardware sensor values.
