    Default Test multiple filesystems

    Hello,

    I would like to test the performances of multiple filesystems or options on those filesystems. It seems that pts does its testing in / (probably in /tmp ?). Would there be a way to do the tests on different mount points (I am using Ubuntu Linux as sandbox).

    I am very new to pts, so this might be easy and straightforward but I haven't found documentation yet on how to do so.

    Thanks for any advice,

    Normally it installs to ~/.phoronix-test-suite/installed-tests/ but you can change that location in ~/.phoronix-test-suite/user-config.xml to reflect other mount points.

    Yes ! I discovered that (doc isn't really clear on that).

    So, I wrote a simple script based on this idea to run tests in user defined path.
    First, I have a template of user-config.xml where every ~/.phoronix-test-suite item has been replaced by a HOMEDIR string
    Code:

    Then, I use a small bash code using sed to replace the user-config.xml by the template and change in it every HOMEDIR string by a defined path, and then run phoronix-test-suite.
    Code:
    #! /bin/bash
    
    if [ $# -ne 3 ] ; then
        echo "Usage : $(basename  $0) MODE TEST PATH"
        exit 1
    fi
    # Get the run mode (benchmark, install or run)
    
    MODE=$1
    shift
    
    TEST=$1
    shift
    
    # Get the path 
    MYPATH=$1
    
    shift
    
    # Change the run path to pts
    cp ~/.phoronix-test-suite/user-config.xml-template ~/.phoronix-test-suite/user-config.xml
    sed -i "s#HOMEDIR#$MYPATH#g" ~/.phoronix-test-suite/user-config.xml
    
    /usr/bin/phoronix-test-suite $MODE $TEST
    It's short, no error checking, but, if that helps...

    There also might be a PTS_INSTALL_DIR environmental variable for overriding the location cleanly instead of using the user-config.xml for the install location. Though I don't remember offhand if it's still in the code or not as I wrote that part probably two years ago, but you can check the environmental variables section of the documentation to see if it's still there.
