Matthew Tippett and I presented at the 2011 Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit today in San Francisco about benchmarking and continuous testing of LLVM and the sub-projects that depend upon this compiler infrastructure. As the slides are somewhat generic and can be applied to many other open-source projects, the slides are now available. It's basically how to leverage the Phoronix Test Suite, Phoromatic, and OpenBenchmarking.org for driving continuous benchmarking to monitor performance regressions.

Here are the slides for those interested. Also worth sharing is that after discussing it with Keith Packard, automated per-commit-driver testing will begin of the open-source Intel Linux graphics driver stack. Finally. This should be started later this month for Intel Mesa and Linux kernel DRM (drm-intel-next) once some new Sandy Bridge hardware arrives. More information to come soon but this should excite many developers and Phoronix readers.
