Comment On This Article

The third milestone release of Phoronix Test Suite 3.6-Arendal is now available for benchmarking on Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris, BSD, and Windows platforms.

There's a fair amount of changes in 3.6 Milestone 3 compared to the earlier Arendal development releases as talked about in those Phoronix postings. Phoronix Test Suite 3.6 offers up a range of improvements over Phoronix Test Suite 3.4 and earlier versions. I expect to have the official release of Phoronix Test Suite 3.6-Arendal ready in the next week or two.

You can download this open-source automated testing/benchmarking framework at Phoronix-Test-Suite.com. Be sure as well to use it in conjunction with OpenBenchmarking.org.
