It was exactly six months ago that Phoronix Test Suite 3.0-Iveland and OpenBenchmarking.org were released during the Southern California Linux Expo. Here's some numbers from where OpenBenchmarking.org is at today.

- More Than 404,789 Benchmarks Completed
- Statistics On More Than 861,283 Computer Components
- More Than 65,339 Test Results
- Finding More Than 9,917 Reviews
- Tracking More Than 180 Product Series
- More Than 107,131 Systems Counted
- More Than 750,478 Search Queries
- 148 Test Profiles, 51 Test Suites
- 1,102 Components Classified Within The OpenBenchmarking.org Performance Classification (OPC) Index

Those are some of the basics. For those still not familiar with OpenBenchmarking.org, see this features page. The Phoronix Test Suite allows the seamless sharing and collaboration of benchmarking results with integration into the Phoronix Test Suite. Thanks to this crowd-sourced benchmarking, a lot of analytics can be generated about hardware and software performance and other areas still being explored. If you're simply a consumer deciding what hardware to purchase, see the OPC Hardware Index.

There's a variety of features and other enhancements to OpenBenchmarking.org that are still forthcoming. I've been talking about several of them over the past six months that I look forward to implementing as soon as time allows. Fortunately, this weekend I've made some progress on some enhancements to OpenBenchmarking.org. There's good progress on the Phoromatic-over-OpenBenchmarking.org implementation, new Phoronix Test Suite 3.4-Lillesand features, usability improvements, and more. I also expect to commit some more features today to both the Phoronix Test Suite and OpenBenchmarking.org. Phoronix Test Suite 3.4-Lillesand is due for release in two weeks with a new development release coming out within the next few days.

This weekend I've also been working on some other Phoronix tests to be talked about soon. There's also the Mesa tracker coming on Phoromatic-over-OpenBenchmarking.org that should likely be announced during my presentation at XDC2011 Chicago.

Anyone with questions/feedback about OpenBenchmarking.org or the Phoronix Test Suite can voice them in the forums or contact us.
