With the development of Ubuntu 10.10 (codenamed the "Maverick Meerkat") getting started and the Ubuntu Developer Summit coming up in just a matter of days, we have re-launched the Ubuntu Phoromatic Tracker to monitor the performance of Ubuntu 10.10 on a daily basis.

We originally launched the Phoromatic Ubuntu Tracker back in March that began tracking Ubuntu's performance on a daily basis late into Lucid's development cycle, but a package upgrade a few weeks into it had borked the installations. We have now loaded up clean installs of Ubuntu on the test systems that are now tracking the Ubuntu Maverick repository, albeit so far is just some updated GCC packages.

The past daily Ubuntu benchmark results can be found at ubuntu-tracker.phoromatic.com, but beginning tomorrow the new results that are beginning to track Ubuntu 10.10 will begin in their automated daily testing.

We also continue to monitor the performance of the upstream Linux kernel on a daily basis at kernel-tracker.phoromatic.com, which we have been running since last year across multiple test systems.

All of this testing is fully automated and reproducible using the Phoronix Test Suite and Phoromatic.
