There Are 140k Benchmark Results So Far On LinuxBenchmarking.com

HARDWARE --
Yesterday data access to LinuxBenchmarking.com was opened, the public results viewer to the immense amount of test data -- primarily the Linux kernel, LLVM Clang, and GCC -- collected on a daily basis within the new server room. Here's some numbers behind it.

First of all, if you didn't read yesterday's article, do so here: Opening The Gates To Our Daily Open-Source Linux Benchmark Results and then visit LinuxBenchmarking.com. There's around fifty systems right now doing nothing but running constant upstream Linux benchmarks in a fully-automated and reproducible manner using the open-source Phoronix Test Suite and Phoromatic testing/benchmarking software. It's purpose is an attempt to track the performance of key upstream open-source projects and catch any performance regressions.

Right now the results are available to the Linux kernel, GCC, LLVM Clang trackers while others are being worked on. For those wondering the scale, with this test farm over the past few months so far, what's available on LinuxBenchmarking.com at the moment are 4,649 test results and 140,105 total benchmark results / data points. Of course, this number is growing by the day with all the tests run each day across the spectrum of systems and more systems being added.

In comparison to our OpenBenchmarking.org result database that's open to the community and up for anything, the current LinuxBenchmarking.com amount is a fraction though more refined and focused specifically on showing the standardized, daily tests from within our lab.

As mentioned yesterday, anyone making a Phoronix tip/donation until 5 June (the 11th birthday of Phoronix!), all of those proceeds are being used for adding more systems to cover more projects/trackers with performance testing.

Later today I'll also be talking about Linux benchmarking and such on Jupiter Broadcasting's Linux Unplugged show.
