      pts-test1 still fails to upload. And anyone having problems running the Wine test?

        I think I may know what's causing the pts-test1 failure and that's due to the size of what's being uploaded, but that requires writing a better way to upload the results.

          On some tests (e.g. audio-encoding) the first run really suffers from disk activity and counting it into average seems a bit odd to me.
          With the latest commit today, now if a test maintainer adds <IgnoreFirstRun>TRUE</IgnoreFirstRun> to their test profile, it will automatically ignore the first result and will not use that in calculating the average.

            How about adding a video encoding test suite with mencoder since we compile mplayer anyways?

              Following PTS 0.5.0/0.6.0, a majority of the focus will turn to cleaning up the existing profiles and adding in new tests along with the PCQS tests... (Phoronix Certification & Qualification Suite)

                So going at the rate your going I guess I can expect that in 3 or 4 days then :P

                  I don't know if it is possible to detect the driver settings of nvidia-glx or fglrx, but it would be nice to have AA and AF settings displayed in the results.
                  New feature... Now if you're using a NVIDIA graphics card, and you run a graphics test from either a suite or individually, if you over-rode the graphics setting from the nvidia-settings utility, the overrode Antialiasing and Anisotropic Filtering levels will be reported under the test notes. This is now in git.

                  PTS now also can monitor the die temperature, but I haven't decided how/where to use that yet.

                    Amazing!

                    On the GPU temperature, maybe it would be enough to have another optional test note. It would be very useful to compare different graphics cards (think of cards with the same GPU and clock rates, but different cooling solutions). Minimum and maximum value would be adequate IMHO, I don't think average calculation or visualization in a graph would make much sense.

                    On the other hand, this could also be optional for other sensor readings (CPU temperature, mainboard temperature, fan speeds...). Having an overall command line option for reading availiable sensor Information would be great, but I have no idea how to present the results in a sophisticated way within every single graph or test note.

                    There is another thing that came to my mind which I am a bit concerned about. PTS generates a lot of additional traffic on external sites (think of all the Nexuiz downloads). Wouldn't it be fair to have those dependencies bundled in an archive and distributed throug bittorrent or something similar? Maybe an included bittorrent downloader would help to reduce traffic impact and be more gentleman like.

                    BTW, I wrote a german tutorial at wiki.ubuntuusers.de to spread the word.

                      MONITOR=cpu.temp,sys.temp,gpu.temp is supported now too, for CPU and system if you have LM_Sensors installed.
