Fortunately as the Phoronix infrastructure is very used to Slashdot, the traffic shouldn't be a problem, but would like to welcome all of the new users that may be looking at -- and trying out -- OpenBenchmarking.org for the first time.
For the new visitors:
- Stop by the features page to learn about the different features and capabilities offered by OpenBenchmarking.org and our open-source (GPLv3) test client, the Phoronix Test Suite.
- Details are on Phoronix from the SCALE presentation entitled Making More Informed Linux Hardware Choices. A video covering a portion of this talk by Matthew Tippett and myself is also embedded below (this is just a quick video that lasted for only about half of the talk before the battery had drained; the full and edited video should be offered from the SCALE web-site in the coming days).
- More information regarding OpenBenchmarking.org and Phoronix Test Suite 3.0 can be found in the Phoronix articles tagged Iveland (the codename for Phoronix Test Suite 3.0).
- If it's your first time running OpenBenchmarking.org, just install Phoronix Test Suite 3.0 from Phoronix-Test-Suite.com (aside from the in-development and rolling-release distributions, most distributions still provide PTS2) and then run a command like phoronix-test-suite benchmark compress-7zip. It's as easy as that. That will download, setup, and run the specified test(s) (or suite(s)) and at the end prompt you to upload to OpenBenchmarking.org. A list of available tests can be found on this page.
Many more features are coming to OpenBenchmarking.org very soon, including improved search capabilities (that seems to be the main bug so far is some search queries yielding no - or odd - results). Subscribe to the blog or you can also via interact with Twitter @OpenBenchmark, @Phoronix, @TippettM or @MichaelLarabel.
