Linux Benchmarking Suite

..It has been quite long since i updated my blog as i was engaged with a lot of stuffs especially benchmarking on distros/linux platforms...Few tools/scripts available to do benchmarking on linux but for me the most reliable tool is non other than Phoronix Test Suite. This suite made my life easy in doing benchmarking..I installed Phoronix Test Suite on Ubuntu 9.10 and openSUSE 11.2 to measure the performance of each distros. The installation is quite straight forward as it can be installed from package management tool. This test suite powers more than 120 test profiles and just to name a few, for example tests on Apache, RAM speed, filesystem evaluation, memory-bandwidth testing, AIO stress test and the list goes on...The results of each tests can be viewed on browser. The output of each test comprises several sections such as specification on system hardware, details on system software, additional details on test and the test results in bar chart.
