  • Benchmarks for Battery Life

    Hi all. I have access to many laptops and may start using the Phoronix Test Suite to benchmark distros in the near future. I'm looking for a good test for benchmarking battery life. Is there such a tool in the Test Suite? If not, are there any plans to develop battery benchmarks?

    At this point you can already apply battery monitoring to any test by running, for example:

    MONITOR=battery.power phoronix-test-suite benchmark x264

      I'm thinking that running a system idle test would be the most accurate for comparing across operating systems (i.e. comparing Windows / OS X / Linux). Is there a way to run battery monitoring while the laptop just idles? Will the runtime be recorded in the log file?

          Thanks Michael. One more question, is there a benchmark you would recommend that can be duplicated on different operating systems for a more accurate estimate of real-world usage?

            Maybe "warsow compress-7zip ffmpeg openssl" for load on the multiple platforms -- at least for Linux / BSD / OS X. Still bringing up the Windows profiles.
