Arbitrary test arguments
I'm using the phoronix-test-suite tools and I'm looking in the test-definition.xml file for a given test and I see 'Default' and 'Option' stanzas. I'd like to make my own options and run them (essentially just different arguments). If I make my own stanzas and give them different names how do I execute them or am I going about this in the wrong way? How else can I specify my own arguments for a given test?
I'd love to be able to do something like
phoronix-test-suite benchmark aio-stress Option [option stanza name]
how can I execute something other than the default arguments?
Take a look at a test like 'nexuiz' or 'botan' for getting an idea about the different options for setting it up. Then look at a suite like 'gaming' to see how the XML file is in there for calling upon test options. That'd be the easiest way to go about doing it, unfortunately I don't have too much formal documentation written at this time that's up-to-date about the test options but the included HTML/PDF docs do cover some of it.
