Daily Linux Kernel Benchmarks For A Year
It was last December that we introduced the Phoromatic Tracker for the Linux kernel where we were benchmarking the very latest snapshots of the upstream Linux kernel on a daily basis. It was also earlier this year that we launched a Phoromatic Tracker for the latest Ubuntu packages.
During the past year we have spotted a few regressions in the Linux kernel with the dozens of tests (circa 60) that run each day across multiple systems and made a number of improvements to the testing stack.
At the moment there's three systems as part of this daily kernel benchmarking, but more though will be added
Much greater features will be coming to Phoromatic too with the introduction of Phoronix Test Suite 3.0 "Iveland" in the next year.
There will also be close integration between Phoromatic and OpenBenchmarking.org for making it easier to submit third-party test profiles to the test farm, binding test profile versions to a given machine, etc.
The new enterprise version of Phoromatic that will be deployable on intranets is also nearing completion at the same time, for those interested can contact us.
Visit kernel-tracker.phoromatic.com for the latest Linux kernel benchmarks. For those interested in a more historical look at the Linux kernel performance, see our five years of Linux kernel benchmarks. The next iteration of Phoromatic will also boast greater analytics capabilities.
