    Default Using tests ofline with downloading packets before

    Hello, do you know if I download packets phoronic test for one time to my PC and use it next time without downloads again from phoronics. These files is quite big and I waste a lot of time to download it every time.
    I'm interested in testing PC with Linux or Windows OS.

    Yes it's easily possible; Basically:

    On a PC with internet connection run:

    phoronix-test-suite install <whatever tests you want, etc>

    run: phoronix-test-suite make-download-cache

    then within ~/.phoronix-test-suite/download-cache/ will be all of the test files. Simply copy the files over to the new PCs to the same location of download-cache/ and you should be set. See other details in the included documentation, etc.

    Included within the program itself in the documentation folder.

    Or from going to the web-site http://phoronix-test-suite.com/?k=documentation there is PDF version: http://www.phoronix-test-suite.com/d...test-suite.pdf

    The make-download-cache sub-command just searches through all installed tests to look for what files are present and will cache them.
