    Building an Automated PTS Live CD

    Hello Guys, Phoronix is AWESOME.

    I've been using the PTS Desktop LiveCD to do benchmarks and it's a great tool.

    Now I'm looking at an automated way to Boot the machine, do certain benchmarks and reboot again.

    I can't use the Phoromatic because the systems won't have internet access or an OS installed.

    Basically I'm looking for a way to Boot, Run Benchmarks, Save the benchmarks somewhere in the localnetwork(SQL database would be optimal).
    Later view the benchmarks.

    Is there a GIT repository for the PTS Desktop Live ?
    Anybody with the same goals ?

    Either saving it to a database would work or set it to automatically just archive ~/.phoronix-test-suite/test-results/ externally.

    For result storage the easiest way would be using your Phoromatic or Phoronix Global account and have it set to auto-upload.
    I see, using Phoromatic would be optimal but I don't have internet access on those servers.
    I'm building a CentOS minimal CD with Phoronix, next step will be saving the data. I think I probably write wraps to save to a mySQL database.

    I appreciate your time Michael, thanks
    Charles.

    I would like to make the modifications.

    Also about the way the data should be saved, what would you recommend so I could pull the reports later.

    Thanks

    It would be possible if you just modify the ISO so that the phoronix-test-suite starts up automatically in phoronix-test-suite batch-benchmark <whatever suite or test(s) you want> after writing the batch mode configuration items (done via phoronix-test-suite batch-setup) to the user-config-defaults.xml file.

    There is no PTS Desktop Live Git repository due to web server storage / bandwidth constraints and much of the package set being that from Ubuntu packages.
