FREE SOFTWARE --
Today a new batch of improvements were committed to LinuxBenchmarking.com while more UI/UX improvements and other functionality is still landing in the days ahead.

LinuxBenchmarking.com, the result viewer to our 60+ system daily automated open-source benchmarking farm that's tracking the performance of upstream projects like the Linux kernel, GCC, Clang, and Clear Linux, is in the process of seeing some improvements via the upstream Phoronix Test Suite and Phoromatic work that powers all of this automated and reproducible benchmarking.

On LinuxBenchmarking.com are more than 535k results collected over the past year from our dedicated daily test systems. Landing today were some minor user-interface improvements and new options for clearing unchanged results, clearing noisy results (a.k.a. results generating lots of noise depending upon the system hardware/software), and attempting to highlight results of interest (a.k.a. possible regressions). With the exception of still fine-tuning the new regression detector, the other features should all be in fairly good shape. However, I'm still tweaking this particular area of the code over the next few days and making some other improvements. An e-mail notifier of regressions will also be enabled in the days ahead while the wife is busy working on some UI/UX and mobile optimizations.

Expect the new version of LinuxBenchmarking.com to be finalized in time for the Phoronix Test Suite 6.2 release later this quarter alongside the overhauled OpenBenchmarking.org. As always, any feedback and suggestions are certainly welcome.

The Phoromatic result viewer as is used by LinuxBenchmarking.com only shows a small portion of the features offered when running your own, full Phoromatic deployment. All of the code continues to be hosted via GitHub. Patches are always welcome as well; LinuxBenchmarking.com is basically just this file.

If you like all the work being done to advanced open-source, automated, and reproducible benchmarking, please consider taking advantage of this week's Phoronix Premium deal to show your support.
