Coming three weeks after the big Phoronix Test Suite 7.0 release, Phoronix Test Suite 7.0.1 contains a few fixes and other minor enhancements to our long-standing open-source benchmarking framework.
A new feature to Phoronix Test Suite 7.0.1 is now supporting network proxies that require a username and password. Via the PTS module capabilities, setting the INSTALL_TIMES_ARE_A_BENCHMARK=1 environment variable will generate charts of install times now with test results. Similarly, setting the INSTALL_SIZES_ARE_A_BENCHMARK=1 environment variable will generate charts of the overall test install sizes on test results. More details on that functionality via the recent article GCC Compiler Tests At A Variety Of Optimization Levels Using Clear Linux.
The Phoronix Device Interface library, Phodevi, has also seen a few hardware/software sensor improvements. There is now sensors support for the NVIDIA Jetson TX2 developer board, fallback graphics detection for ARM Mali hardware on Linux, and various other ARM board improvements.
Phoronix Test Suite 7.0.1 also has a few formatting improvements to different CLI sub-commands and other minor alterations. Phoronix Test Suite 7.0.1 is available from Phoronix-Test-Suite.com or the GitHub project site.
Phoronix Test Suite 7.2-Trysil is under development for release in Q2.
