  • 'stacked' tests (running multiple tests concurrently)

    I want to running several tests at the same time. I can do this with a wrapper script and running multiple instances of pts (and ignore the warning messages), but eventually my wrapper script will become a framework itself.

    My idea is to copy the 'suite' and modify it to run the included tests in the background, and call this a 'stack'. I realize what an over simplification that is.

    Before I get started I thought I'd ask if there's a better tack or a work around that might be 'good enough'.

    Thanks,

    Rob

    Hi Rob,

    Why do you want to run multiple tests simultaneously? It would likely lead to very inaccurate test results.

      My purpose is to validate the complete system (hardware). Stacked tests (and the term 'stacked tests') are typical for this purpose. For example I might want to run the streams benchmark while at the same time keep the pci bus saturated with iozone.

      Thanks!

        Hmm, at this time there is no such ability to run the tests concurrently. That could change in the relatively near future, perhaps, but not before Phoronix Test Suite 2.0. So your best bet for now may be to just write the shell script for executing tests simultaneously.
