If you liked yesterday's OpenBenchmarking.org preview (it looks like many people did) for dramatically easing the quest in finding Linux compatible hardware and easing other hardware comparisons and research, you may want to try out the just-released Phoronix Test Suite 3.0 "Iveland" Beta 2 build.

This second beta of Phoronix Test Suite 3.0, which further integrates OpenBenchmarking.org support, is now available for testing. To ensure a successful 3.0-Iveland and OpenBenchmarking.org launch from the SCALE 9x conference, feel free to try out this latest version of our open-source automated testing/benchmarking platform and be sure to submit your results at the end to OpenBenchmarking.org.

Compared to the first Iveland beta from just over a week ago, Beta 2 brings support for logging into your OpenBenchmarking.org account (well, once the service goes public to everyone), major improvements to the OpenBenchmarking.org MIME launcher (to be demonstrated in a video on Phoronix within the next two weeks), and the openbenchmarking-refresh command has been added to refresh the repository indexes for test profiles/suites.

Besides OpenBenchmarking.org improvements on the Phoronix Test Suite side, there is also a rewritten CSV generator for test results (it continues to be accessible via the result-file-to-csv argument), smarter dynamic run count handling, updates to the ~/.phoronix-test-suite/user-config.xml specification, openSUSE external dependency updates, and support for a new graphing type (filled line graphs) via pts_Graph.

This latest 3.0 snapshot can be downloaded at Phoronix-Test-Suite.com. More information on other features of both OpenBenchmarking.org and Phoronix Test Suite 3.0 will be talked about in the coming weeks leading up to the "Iveland" launch from Los Angeles.
