A new release of the Phoronix Test Suite 4.2-Randaberg development code integrates auto-driven benchmark capabilities via new OpenBenchmarking.org
Two weeks ago I wrote about auto-determining relevant Linux benchmarks to run
by having the Phoronix Test Suite leverage the vast amount of information that's automatically collected by OpenBenchmarking.org with regard to test profiles, test download and installation statistics, and various other important data points.
Updates for this next release of Phoronix Test Suite introduce auto-compare
arguments to the phoronix-test-suite
for tapping these new features. For more information on these unique new features, see the aforelinked article for extensive details.
Aside from these improvements, there's also various other internal work going on to pts-core right now, which will be exposed to users in future milestone releases. Committed in the past few days to the OpenBenchmarking.org web-site have also been various user/interface enhancements.
Features introduced in the first milestone release of Phoronix Test Suite 4.2 are detailed in its release announcement
from earlier this month.
The latest stable and development releases of the Phoronix Test Suite are available from Phoronix-Test-Suite.com
The official release of Phoronix Test Suite 4.2 is expected by year's end.
