Almost a month after the release of Phoronix Test Suite 2.0 Beta 1
, the second beta release for Sandtorg
is now available. With being less than a month away from the final release of Phoronix Test Suite 2.0, this second beta serves largely to address bugs and other outstanding issues, but there are also a few new additions too.
Phoronix Test Suite 2.0 Beta 2 has improvements to its GTK2 GUI, new Phoronix Global
improvements, the introduction of a OverrideTestOptions
XML tag for test suites, support for TOTAL_LOOP_TIME
environmental variables, and two new commands. The two new commands in Sandtorg Beta 2 are user-config-get
for reading and writing to the program's user configuration file in an easier way than modifying an XML file by hand. There are also various bug-fixes, code cleanups, and other improvements in this new testing build too. With Phodevi (the Phoronix Device Interface), there is also now detection support for NILFS2 file-systems
When it comes to the test profiles and suites within the Phoronix Test Suite, this new beta release brings some small updates to the OpenSolaris support, updated external dependencies, fixes, and updates to the WINE and PostgreSQL test profiles.
The latest release of the Phoronix Test Suite can be downloaded from Phoronix-Test-Suite.com
. The final release of Phoronix Test Suite 2.0 "Sandtorg" is expected in early August. Some of the new features for this multi-OS benchmarking platform are discussed here
