Improved Line Graphs Come To Phoronix Results

Semi-frequently there's been requests to improve the line graphs that are shown for certain test results within Phoronix articles. Fortunately, thanks to the work of an independent contributor, there are improvements you can find within Phoronix Test Suite 5.2-Khanino that will affect future articles.

In reducing some clutter and improving the effectiveness of the text within Phoronix Test Suite line graph data, a GitHub contributor, Mufasa72, has contributed some graphing improvements that will be found with the upcoming release of Phoronix Test Suite 5.2 (and in the days ahead with the 5.2 Milestone 2 release).

Mufasa72 managed to beat me to making the graphing improvements, due to single-handedly writing all of the Phoronix.com content plus leading the development of the Phoronix Test Suite, Phoromatic, and OpenBenchmarking.org. Here's an example of the new line graphing code with today's ACPI CPUfreq vs. Intel P-State Scaling With Linux 3.15 data re-rendered from OpenBenchmarking.org:
