  • Creation of new tests

    Hello, first time poster. I was wondering if anyone could point me to resources or documentation on how you take a source code file or executable and create a new test. I understand the basic structure of a test as found in the local test profile folder, but I have not been able to find resources that explain how the interacts with any source code or executable.

    Unfortunately, documentation is admittedly lacking in this area due to resources. Have you looked at a basic test like say stream, c-ray, or so and start out modifying that? That's generally how I recommend it for newcomers to learn.

      No worries, I've been inspecting the implementation of the c-ray test. I think my biggest question is which of the test-profile files determines where the render time has been printed after the .c file has printed it into a file. I guess I'm just missing the connection between the output of the executable and Phoronix.

      Thanks for all your help!
