A Week With OpenBenchmarking.org

OpenBenchmarking.org has now been live for just under one week since launching it (and Phoronix Test Suite 3.0) from the Southern California Linux Expo when talking about making more informed Linux hardware choices. Here's some statistics on how it's going.

First though, for those not familiar with OpenBenchmarking.org, see the slides above in the linked article and/or visit the features page and welcome letter.

- 37,027 result uploads are on OpenBenchmarking.org
- 241,384 tests have been completed (those are just the ones counted)
- 9,712 industry reviews are accessible via OpenBenchmarking.org via the Cekora Engine
- 73,697 unique systems with Phoronix Test Suite installations have been counted on OpenBenchmarking.org
- There's statistics on 468,344 components
- 438 hardware vendors are listed
- 183 product series are recognized
- 23,783 search queries have been carried out so far on 2,601 unique terms; compare that to the numbers above, and that is barely scratching the surface of the information available on OpenBenchmarking.org

A few days after the SCALE launch, the OpenBenchmarking.org blog went live with other information and a unique way to look at the best data and results from OpenBenchmarking.org.

We're also just a few days out from more improvements to the search capabilities, a lot more work on OpenBenchmarking.org Performance Classifications (OPC), and Phoronix Test Suite 3.0.1 will be out in a week or two with a couple of minor changes.

We're still looking for more feedback and feature requests for OpenBenchmarking.org and Phoronix Test Suite 3.0-Iveland so please let us know any thoughts on your mind via the forums or emails.

OpenBenchmarking.org is also now on Twitter if you prefer communicating that way. With a (slightly) smaller workload now that OpenBenchmarking.org is working and Phoronix Test Suite 3.0 are out the door, I am now also using Twitter (@MichaelLarabel) where you can find out articles that are coming up, other thoughts not to be found on Phoronix (such as the passion for Bavarian beer), and interact that way.
