Timed Battery Test

A test profile that keeps carrying out the same operation until the battery is exhausted. When running PTS a second time with that configuration it will then parse the result and save it. The result is the reported Linux system uptime. This test profile is currently tentative/experimental for selected use-cases.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark system/timed-battery-test.

Use with caution this test profile is currently marked Experimental.
