Earlier this month Phoronix Test Suite 5.4 was released. Out today in time for some holiday benchmarking is the first point release to Phoronix Test Suite 5.4 "Lipki" for open-source, automated benchmarking on Linux / OS X / Solaris / BSD / Windows.

The big focus of the Phoronix Test Suite 5.4 development cycle was on the built-in, self-hosting, next-generation Phoromatic Server for controlling many Phoronix Test Suite systems with ease. The new Phoronix Test Suite with Phoromatic is what powers our 32 system automated daily test farm tracking the upstream performance of the Linux kernel Git, LLVM Clang, and other code-bases over at

The Phoronix Test Suite 5.4.1 release just has a few bug-fixes over the original 5.4.0 release. Among the changes for Phoronix Test Suite 5.4.1 are:

- Updated AppData XML for the Phoronix Test Suite.

- The result parser in pts-core now has improved support for parsing CSV frame latency dumps as needed by newer test profiles, currently is needed by the new test of Civilization: Beyond Earth.

- The phoronix-test-suite enterprise-setup sub-command. See the documentation for more details.

- Various Phoromatic Server updates, including improved result strings when merging random result files, reporting of the IP/MAC addresses on the system claim page, and other minor enhancements.

Going forward this will likely be the only point release to Phoronix Test Suite 5.4. In the next few weeks I should be merging a lot of new code for what will become Phoronix Test Suite 5.6. The focus this next cycle will be on continued Phoromatic work along with other pts-core improvements. I'm thinking that the 5.6 release will probably be ready by late January or early-to-mid February.

The latest Phoronix Test Suite release can be downloaded via or Phoronix-Test-Suite on GitHub.
