    Phoronix: Phoronix Test Suite 0.6.0 Released

    For those of you interested in trying out new open-source software this weekend, Phoronix Test Suite 0.6.0 has been released with an arsenal of new features for this Linux benchmarking platform. There are new and updated profiles with this release, new test suites, support for backing up downloaded tests, and much more. Since Phoronix Test Suite 0.5.0 are 48 official changes in the past week, which reinforces our plans on having a 1.0 release ready by early June.

      Just noticed this post just now, sorry. From the MP3 to WAV encoding process, the time was stretched out by 50% in order to make the file longer. Still wish I could find a better free wav file...

        Michael, Nine Inch Nails released their latest albumn under the creative commons attribution-non-commercial-share alike license. They have the album available in many formats including 24/96 wave. This license would allow it to be redistributed with the suite.

        "we encourage you to remix it share it with your friends, post it on your blog, play it on your podcast, give it to strangers, etc."

          yep that nine inch nail album is the best idea I think. If it's not long enough stitch two tracks together.

          Also I'd like to know how you upload results and have the "uploaded by" comment to display your user name.

          And when is the search going to work? Since this would be really useful.

          Thanks,
          Brendan

            First you need to register with PTS Global using the create account panel on the left of the results page.

            To configure your account in your copy of PTS, run:
            Code:
            ./phoronox-test-suite login
            and enter the details required.

            After that all uploaded results will be linked to your account.

            To actually upload the results, this can be done automatically after you finish running a test, or you can manually upload results using:
            Code:
            ./phoronix-test-suite upload

              Then I guess you didn't notice this one, either: http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showp...35&postcount=9
              Just use Nine Inch Nail's Ghosts I-IV or The Slip. And PLEASE, don't transcode from FLAC to MP3 and back to WAV.

                    I noticed the original post, but the problem was that usually I check out a new post/thread within 2~5 minutes of it being posted... So I didn't notice your edit where you appended the info. Anyways, I am uploading one of the NIN WAV files right now.

                      Though this WAV file isn't distributed with PTS itself but is downloaded externally only with the scripts where the file is needed. Is that still incompatible? (I am no license expert)

                        How is it incompatible with version 3 of the GPL? The content in question isn't software, and Michael would only be doing what the CC license warants: sharing it, with the proper credits.

                          I agree, but I am not a lawyer. I can't see anything in the cc by-na-sa license that is incompatible with gplv3 since the file is being distributed separately. As long as the work is attributed and a link to the license given, there's no problem.

                              As you work with Ubuntu you could add a debian dir to create a Debian package. Also how about supporting default search path for the test data outside home. Of course you need temp space but for the rest you could use data packages like pts-universe-data or so, maybe together with depends if needed. Even when you are able to change that locally in a config file there should be a hardcoded way to search in order to prepare it this way. For the compression files I took my best to remove the need of outputfiles, but it seems you like temp very much - every new test you add has em again.
