BlogBench

BlogBench is designed to replicate the load of a real-world busy file server by stressing the file-system with multiple threads of random reads, writes, and rewrites. The behavior is mimicked of that of a blog by creating blogs with content and pictures, modifying blog posts, adding comments to these blogs, and then reading the content of the blogs. All of these blogs generated are created locally with fake content and pictures.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark blogbench.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

BlogBench 1.1

Test: Read

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 1,214 public results since 4 December 2018 with the latest data as of 15 June 2024.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.
