PHORONIX TEST SUITE -- as of today is at 21.2 million test profile and test suite downloads via the Phoronix Test Suite. That number increased by almost eight million this year!

Curious about the 2016 numbers and with working on some end-of-year recaps, I was curious about the growth in 2016... Well, in late January we were celebrating hitting 14 million downloads while earlier in December we celebrated 21 million downloads. In other words, close to eight million test/suite downloads for 2016 from!

The 21.2 million downloads in total from don't even come close to the total number of test/suite installations either due to many companies running all of their tests "behind the firewall" without Internet access and are using Phoromatic or other caching techniques for distributing all of the test/suite meta-data locally/offline.

There are 940 tests and suite components currently on, more than 1.2 million public benchmark results, statistics on 5.86 million test completions, and there have been more than 11.6 million searches. It's been another rapid-growth year for the adoption of our cross-platform, fully-automated, open-source benchmarking software.

In early 2016 we rolled out the new web interface while for the Phoronix Test Suite 7.0 release in 2017 I am hoping to land more features and improvements.
