It's been about two weeks since the release of Phoronix Test Suite 1.0.2, and now version 1.0.3 has been released. This minor update to this Linux benchmarking and testing platform licensed under the GNU GPLv3 adds new test profiles, a new suite, and a couple fixes.
The new test profiles in this release include byte, bonnie, and ut2004-demo. The byte test profile is for the BYTE Unix Benchmarks that focuses on a variety of computational work such as dhrystone 2, register arithmetic, and floating-point arithmetic. For those interested in benchmarking a system's hard disk drive, the bonnie test profile is for Bonnie++ benchmarking. Last but certainly not least, we've finally added in an Unreal Tournament 2004 (demo) test profile for benchmarking various maps.
The new test suite within Phoronix Test Suite 1.0.3 is named "disk" and consists of disk drive benchmarks, which currently consists of iozone and the just-added bonnie profile.
Aside from the new suite and test profiles, Phoronix Test Suite 1.0.3 has a few minor fixes as well as adding in a missing PTS External Dependency on Ubuntu, results parsing enhancements, checking (and reporting) if the BOINC process is running, and an LM_Sensors parsing fix.
