    Phoronix: Preview Of The Massive New Open-Source, Linux Test Farm

    They say a picture is worth one thousand words, but how many Linux systems is a picture worth?..

      It's not THAT much warmer as Phoromatic takes care of turning off / WoL'ing systems to power up when there is tests needing to be done but when idling will power off completely. Plus lots of latest efficient hardware.

By the end of the weekend, 28~30 systems dedicated to this mission... Open-source, Linux benchmarks every single day with full automation and reproducibility looking for upstream regressions and tracking the overall performance with real-world workloads. Antergos/Arch Linux, Linux mainline Git, LLVM/Clang daily, Fedora Rawhide Nodebug, Linux + Mesa Git, daily Ubuntu Vivid packages, daily Debian unstable, and openSUSE Tumbleweed...
        Add Mageia Cauldron to the list if possible?

          Is there anything unique/interesting from Mageia these days? Anything different about their kernel/compiler/etc compared to Arch/Ubuntu/Debian/openSUSE/Fedora?

            Ooooh....pretty.

            Really looking forward to seeing the output from this, especially excited to see more Arch benchmarks.

              Massive?

              I expected to see rows and rows of rack mounted computers, instead I see just a bunch of PCs in a corner.

                People with Adblock Plus are the reason, Michael is on a budget!

                  Racks are for servers.

                  Linux on servers is probably overtested by big corps anyway

                    It's simple math

                    Easy:

                    running
                    Code:
                    find * -print0 | wc --words --files0-from=-
                    on the mainline kernel source tree (commit g56c67ce) gives a result of 62294310 words total.
                    Therefore, a picture is worth 1000/62294310=0.000016053 Linux systems.
                    And that doesn't even include other programs running on those systems.
