Phoromatic Tracker Launches To Monitor Linux Performance
Phoronix: Phoromatic Tracker Launches To Monitor Linux Performance
Last month Phoromatic went into public beta, which is our remote test management software for the Phoronix Test Suite that allows a wealth of possibilities including the ability to easily build a benchmarking test farm. At the start of this month, we in fact announced that the Phoronix Kernel Test Farm went live and it would be benchmarking the latest mainline Linux kernel on a daily basis. This was followed by the addition of a system in our test farm to benchmark the latest Fedora Rawhide packages on a daily basis. We had not intended to begin pushing out these results publicly through a new web-site until next year, but we have already collected some interesting metrics that are documenting active regressions within the Linux 2.6.33 kernel. As a result, this morning we are rolling out Phoromatic Tracker, the public interface to our test farm.
Additional systems for kernel-tracker
Was wondering when you anticipate getting more systems added to the kernel tracker? I see the 32-bit Atom system, and wondered specifically when we can expect to see a 'moderately performant' 64-bit dual/quad core in the mix?
I've a 32-bit Athlon XP system sitting around what I would gladly volunteer as an additional system to the kernel-tracker. If you're interested, let me know.
