So it has been just over a week since we've launched OpenBenchmarking.org, and now we are beginning to get real data from the thousands of people who have just started using OpenBenchmarking and contributing their results. As part of one of the initial blog postings, Michael posted a HOWTO that guides the user on using the compress-7zip result set. The data-set was about 170 uploads.
So, here is the data presented with score against the submission date.

You sure look like you're having fun playing with the data, I'm a little jealous :D
I particularly like how the graph shows distinct jumps when the number of cores change.

grokit: There will eventually be an external API so others can play with the data too. [But it's just one item on my long and growing TODO list.]

Cool. I can't wait to play with. I kind of thought you would get to it eventually. What you started here is a wonderful thing. I've been reading your blog for a while now so I think I have at least some idea how you think. The first time I saw this site I knew you weren't done yet. OpenBenchmarking.org may be up and running (quite well I might add) but it's missing some part of an attention to detail that I see in your other work. I guess I'm trying to say that this feels like a sweet 1.0 release. I can't wait for the awesomeness of the 2.0!! You are doing good and interesting work here. Much appreciated.

Thanks, glad people are enjoying it. If you come up with any other features you'd like to see or anything else, let us know.

I've got some ideas but I've not had the time to fully explore the site. They may already exist. Where's a good spot for bug reports/ feature requests?

Phoronix Forums or email are probably the best.
