In particular, I'd like to set a benchmark so we can compute also machine scores according to the algorithm in the first post (we can do it manually for now). Maybe an atom based netbook (I think you need at least 9 inch display for the 3D test to run). Can someone please run in such a system?
It's not the last word (we can still change/modify/improve the test), but here are my thoughts:
Added fio "server load" test, which does lots of random read/writes all over the place. This should give the disk a run for its money :-) I think it's along the lines of Grigi's suggestion.
Since we have a separate test for the disk, I used openssl for a multicore cpu test. It runs faster, it's a small download, and scales very well with CPU speed and number of processors
For 3D I am using Norsetto-Shadow, because it's a small download. It won't push the newest cards to the limit, but it should run on pretty anything, and should scale with GPU speed and bandwidth (the size of the GPU memory won't matter).I think it's a lot better than glxgears, but small/fast enough to fit the goal of this test.
For 2D I think the gtkperf combobox tests are more stable and scale better than the gtkperf "draw" tests, so I used one of these.
Norsetto Shadows didn't work on it. That's really not a good test.
Ok, why don't we do it the other way around, we find some not too large 3D test that runs in the mini in a reasonable amount of time? Also: I had to symlink libGL.so to libGl.so.1.2 in my machine to be able to compile Norsetto.
What happened with fio? Do you have little space left in the disk?
I wonder why gtkperf was so close in both tests. I thought the Radeon HD 3200 would beat the mini's Intel embedded, maybe it's ok.
There is currently no system-quick suite, but if you propose a suite with what tests to include and such, I would be happy to make it. Or if you run: phoronix-test-suite build-suite you can create the suite and I would be glad to push it upstream.
Note that the score of system-quick is also the geometric mean of the other two. When you run a test, besides the global score we can show the individual scores, like in geekbench: a big number, and details beneath.
 Does the composite aggregate all the individual tests od scimark2? That would be best.
 The regular test for build-apache builds it 3 times, way too long for this. Can we build it just once in this test?
 Draw circle may be limited. Can we run all "draw" tests sequentially and aggregate? (maybe not)
 What do we do in cases where Unigine fails? (older cards). Maybe we should only show the cpu score in that case.
