Benchmarking on Fedora is as easy as running yum install phoronix-test-suite and then running phoronix-test-suite benchmark favorites (or another test/suite), it's really that easy! Pushed into Fedora 11 and as an update to Fedora 9 and Fedora 10 is the Phoronix Test Suite.

The Phoronix Test Suite is our GPLv3 software for running automated tests on Linux, OpenSolaris, MacOS X, and BSD operating systems. The Phoronix Test Suite ships with over 90 test profiles and 30 test suites and new test profiles can be easily added through our framework. The Phoronix Test Suite has already appeared in Ubuntu's repositories, Mandriva, and other distributions too. Packaged in Fedora is the latest Phoronix Test Suite 1.8 release.

If you have any questions about the Phoronix Test Suite, stop by our forum. We have also begun sharing our plans for Phoronix Test Suite 2.0, which has been codenamed Sandtorg.
