The Phoronix Test Suite software, which we will soon release in an alpha state, not only carries out the actual Linux benchmarking, but it will also provide an easy way to browse the results. A browser-based results viewer is already completed and the results will be graphed via the same system we have been using internally. While the test suite isn't yet ready to publish, tonight we have pushed out the code to our new graphing utility. This is the same code we use to generate bar graphs inside of our articles.

Phx-Grapher Utility Open-Sourced


This source-code is available via Phorogit or downloading phx-grapher v0.1 from the releases directory at Phoronix-Test-Suite.com. We are publishing this source-code now due to interest by some in utilizing these graphing capabilities in other environments. Phx-Grapher is licensed under the GNU GPLv3 and is currently made up of about 600+ lines of PHP code and depends upon the GD library. This code is meant to be extensible when it comes to the configuration options and it currently supports both bar and line graphs. For those without these dependencies, graphs can be generated remotely from a web server, which is described in the README file. This document also describes the programming interface and other information for Phx-Grapher. Also uploaded are a few graph samples.

Phx-Grapher is still very much a work in progress and any feedback or patches are welcome. This open-source graphing software can be discussed in the Phoronix Forums. Look for more information on Phx-Grapher and the Phoronix Test Suite in the near future.
