Our Continuous Linux Benchmarking Test Farm Is Partially Back Online

There's still a lot of work ahead in finishing up the new server room / test farm, but some of the systems have been restored in the new rackmount environment and proceeding with their daily (and in some cases per-commit) open-source Linux benchmarking in a fully-automated and standardized fashion.

The past few weeks I've been very busy builing the new server room for the Phoronix Test Suite / Phoromatic automated benchmarking showcased at LinuxBenchmarking.com. In the past few days the first 42U rack is now nearly full, I've started work assembling the second rack, and have already had to place an order for a third 42U rack for housing all of this (low cost server equipment) Linux benchmarking infrastructure of upstream free software projects, since the previous update on the build.

Everything so far is turning out much nicer than the previous setup and my latest estimate is to be fully operational this forthcoming week.

Stay tuned for more details on Phoronix along with reviews on the various new server equipment I've purchased for this new Linux benchmarking environment. Any immediate questions can be addressed by commenting on this article.

With the larger environment, much greater power capacity, and improved cooling, we'll be able to deliver even more daily Linux benchmarks in tracking of performance changes/regressions across key open-source projects to demonstrate the power of the Phoronix Test Suite, Phoromatic, and OpenBenchmarking.org.
