For those of you that use Phoromatic
, our web-based remote test management system to the Phoronix Test Suite
, the public web-site is now accessible via HTTPS (Phoromatic.com
) and in the latest Git code for the Phoronix Test Suite 3.0 "Iveland" release the test result / system log communication to the server is done via HTTPS as well. This has been of interest to some organizations that may be testing unreleased hardware or software while using our non-Intranet version of Phoromatic and is coming just a week after OpenBenchmarking.org received some improvements
, including HTTPS support.
More improvements to OpenBenchmarking.org and Phoromatic are right on the horizon. Phoronix Test Suite 3.0 will be released in Q1'2011 when OpenBenchmarking.org "Frigg" also officially launches.
Phoromatic can be used by enthusiasts and anyone else freely via its web-site, but is primarily designed for enterprise usage with managing test farms/clusters of computers to run tests on a scheduled basis, etc. It is also what powers our daily benchmarks of Ubuntu
and the Linux kernel
via the Phoromatic Tracker extension. It can also be used to easily and effectively benchmark systems around the world
or simply manage your test harness when out surfing
