  • System Activity profile Measurement with Phoronix, is it possible?

    My goal is to understand average activity of various system components over a period of time.
    "Time average" is really critical here..
    For example , If I want to know the IO activity (BW), Memory R/W acitivity, Processor States over a 24 hour period, is it possible using phoronix test suites?

    I may have to define certain tests (IO, Memory, Processor) for a suite to test..
    Or , For example I run a workload(real life workload) and then somehow use phoronix to capture the time average of memory/IO/GFX or CPU activitiy profile..


    Experts, please help, please send me any pointer where I could take a look..

    thx

    Have you looked at phoronix-test-suite system-sensors output? You can then do e.g.

    MONITOR=all phoronix-test-suite benchmark idle

    or so and then find all detected/supported sensors graphed.

      Thanks Michael.. where do i set this variable?
      I plan to run a perl script in linux.

      By the way, is there a way run a test or a test suite in a loop. Can you please send an example pls? I am new on this..
      I also Plan to stress test cpu or anything else in a loop and monitor temperature/system profile information continously.

        Wherever you want, in your terminal, etc. It's a standard environment variable.

        Yes, there is the LIMIT_ELAPSED_TEST_TIME and such environment variable as explained in the documentation - http://phoronix-test-suite.com/docum...test-suite.pdf
