    Phoronix: Phoronix Test Suite Brings Benchmarking To Mac OS X

    In the Phoronix Test Suite 1.2 "Malvik" release our flagship Linux benchmarking software was brought to OpenSolaris and FreeBSD. With Phoronix Test Suite 1.4 "Orkdal", to be officially released later this year, we are now extending our test support to include Apple's Mac OS X operating system. In Phoronix Test Suite 1.4 Alpha 2 that was released this morning there is full support for Mac OS X within this open-source benchmarking framework and there are about three dozen tests that will run "out of the box" in this environment. We believe this is now the most comprehensive benchmarking platform for Mac OS X and it allows real-world test results to be compared from Linux, OpenSolaris, and FreeBSD.

    Thought so, that's why I only got avg. 36 frames in the bench.

    It's a bug within X-Plane that is Mac-specific. Laminar Research is working to correct this issue with the 9.3 version of X-Plane for its special PTS version.

    It should take off without any pause displayed on screen.

    O.K, thanx, now I know I'm on the righ track

    It will take me long time to download all the packages. My ISP has throttled my net speed down to a wee bit faster than 56K dialup

    Yes, it needs those files for the OpenGL benchmarks i.e. test your graphics card.

    O.K I ran the bench suite, but is it normal for it to want to download all the software such as nexuiz-242.zip (375MN), UrbanTerror_41_FULL.zip (720MB) etc?

    Well I ran the darwin suite, definitely some interesting results:
    benchie

    Get plenty of errors so when I get the time I'll go through each test individually to see whats happening, but for now build-php always fails
    no matter what :P.

    The installation went o.k, when I doubled clicked on "Phoronix-test-suite", Terminal returned this message:
    To run the Phoronix Test Suite locally you must first change directories to phoronix-test-suite/ or install the program using the install-sh script. For support visit: http://www.phoronix-test-suite.com/


    What's my next step?
    Yes you run from terminal.

    Just launch terminal, cd to the directory of phoronix-test-suite, and then run say ./phoronix-test-suite benchmark darwin.
