CLEAR LINUX --
For visitors to LinuxBenchmarking.com, the results of our automated, daily benchmarking of Intel's Clear Linux distribution is now public.

If you missed my overview from a few days back, see Getting Started With Intel's Clear Linux High-Performance Distribution. Clear Linux is a distribution primarily intended for servers with running container-ized applications and other cloud applications. You can learn more at ClearLinux.org.

The primary system for this daily Clear Linux benchmarking is the newly-built Intel Xeon E3 1245 v5 Skylake workstation. There is also a Skylake-based Pentium G4400 system for a lower-end target in looking for any performance trends of the systems over time with the near-daily Clear Linux system updates. This performance tracker was made possible by Intel Corp.

The performance tracker on these two systems were just started a few days back, so there isn't too much to look at now, but as the weeks and months go by there should be some interesting metrics considering Clear Linux stays up to date with new stable Linux kernel releases and of other key software packages. In the days ahead I'll still be adding more tests to the Clear Linux performance tracker. All of this testing is 100% automated daily -- like the other LinuxBenchmarking.com trackers -- using the open-source Phoronix Test Suite and its integrated Phoromatic component for multi-system test orchestration and management.

Separate from the Clear Linux tracker, on LinuxBenchmarking.com is over a year's worth of mainline Linux kernel Git performance data, GCC compiler benchmarks, Clang compiler benchmarks, Mesa tests, and more. There's more to come too in 2016 along with continued work on the Phoronix Test Suite / Phoromatic software.
