I've searched google and this forum but didn't found the right information. I want to perform I/O tests inside a directory where a hard disk is mounted. For example the compilebench benchmark has a "-D" command line parameter to specify the directory where the benchmark takes place. I want to change this parameter in the configuration files (not in the source). The default directory is in ~/.phoronix-test-suite. This partition is to small on my system to perform such benchmarks.
