    Do you recommend rebooting in between tests? I find that my system slows to a crawl or even locks up if I try to run 2-3 different PTS tests back to back without a reboot. Maybe there's some cache I should be clearing. I should probably RTFM and stop asking dumb questions.

      What tests are you running? And on what kind of hardware? Generally you shouldn't need to reboot in between tests.

        Old system - Sandy Bridge i3-2370M laptop, with a Linux-libre kernel on openSUSE Tumbleweed. I was checking against your results for openSUSE in this article: https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pa...l-xps-os&num=1.

        I got better results than you for openSUSE by running the EXT4 file system on several tests - PyBench, PHPBench, and PolyBench. I restarted after PyBench and PHPBench, then ran PolyBench and AOBench back-to-back and the system crapped out.

        But that's been my experience with PTS so far, is that I need to restart after every test. As I said, I haven't read the manual, I was thinking maybe there was a cache I should be clearing. Or, it could just be that tests like AOBench are too stressful for this old laptop.

          Have not encountered any issues like that, should run pretty much seamless but haven't run it on any hardware that old in a while or unless Tumbleweed somehow changed something causing slowdowns recently.

            So I guess my main question regarding if there's some type of a cache I should be clearing - the answer would be no?

              Correct, PTS enforces no cache nor does anything to try to interfere with the upstream benchmark/program's behavior.
