Is there a way to set the value of FORCE_TIMES_TO_RUN for specific tests rather than for all tests? I want to run the random read/random write parts of tiobench for longer due to the massive deviation in results without forcing longer tests to repeat unneccessarily
Alternatively, is it possible to change the number of repeated tests phoronix automatically runs when the std dev of results is greater than the threshold?

At the moment there is no way to selectively apply FORCE_TIMES_TO_RUN, it's never been requested before. The best you could do would be to modify the value within the test profile at ~/.phoronix-test-suite/test-profiles/

Manually changing <TimesToRun> works very well, thanks for your help
