Daily Linux Kernel Benchmarks For A Year

Last year we introduced Phoromatic as an extension to the Phoronix Test Suite for making it easy to build a benchmarking test farm or simply benchmarking systems across the world all from a simple and easy-to-use web-interface where all of the test results are also stored. A few months after launching Phoromatic, Phoromatic Tracker launched as an extension to that for being able to monitor the performance of a given software component on a timed basis or even on a per-commit VCS basis (or when externally triggered otherwise). As an example of that, we launched our Linux kernel test farm, which has now been running for a year.

It was last December that we introduced the Phoromatic Tracker for the Linux kernel where we were benchmarking the very latest snapshots of the upstream Linux kernel on a daily basis. It was also earlier this year that we launched a Phoromatic Tracker for the latest Ubuntu packages.

During the past year we have spotted a few regressions in the Linux kernel with the dozens of tests (circa 60) that run each day across multiple systems and made a number of improvements to the testing stack.

At the moment there's three systems as part of this daily kernel benchmarking, but more though will be added

Much greater features will be coming to Phoromatic too with the introduction of Phoronix Test Suite 3.0 "Iveland" in the next year.

There will also be close integration between Phoromatic and OpenBenchmarking.org for making it easier to submit third-party test profiles to the test farm, binding test profile versions to a given machine, etc.

The new enterprise version of Phoromatic that will be deployable on intranets is also nearing completion at the same time, for those interested can contact us.
