Easy To Use

The Phoronix Test Suite makes the process of carrying out automated tests incredibly simple. The Phoronix Test Suite will take care of the entire test process from dependency management to test download/installation, execution, and result aggregation.

Extensible Architecture

The Phoronix Test Suite has access to more than test profiles and over test suites via If there is a test not currently covered by the Phoronix Test Suite, new tests can be quickly added via its extensible architecture with each profile just being comprised of XML files and a few simple bash scripts.

Support & Custom Engineering

Comprehensive support options are available for the Phoronix Test Suite. Custom engineering services are available as well as professional support for new test development, support deploying the Phoronix Test Suite and Phoromatic within organizations, performance monitoring/management as a service, and a variety of other custom services.

Result Recording

Beyond just recording the actual test value, the Phoronix Test Suite archives system logs, the test and installation logs. Results from the Phoronix Test Suite are displayed in a web-based results viewer with optional support for uploading them to Many other options are also offered from exporting results to PDF to running side-by-side performance comparisons.

  • Contains a feature called PTS Global where users are able to upload their test results and system information for sharing. Then through executing a single command, other users can compare their test results to a selected system in an easy-comparison mode;[6]
  • Allow report benchmark results to the Phoronix Global online database;
  • Allow compare results side-by-side;
  • Is extensible and new tests can be added easily;
  • Can do anonymous usage reporting;
  • Can do automated Git bisecting on a performance basis to find performance regressions. It features statistical significance verification.



Phoromatic is a web-based remote test management system for the Phoronix Test Suite. It does automatic scheduling of tests. It is aimed at the enterprise. It can manage multiple test nodes simultaneously within a test farm or distributed environment.

Phoromatic Tracker[edit]

Phoromatic Tracker is an extension of Phoromatic that provides a public interface into test farms.[7] Currently their reference implementations autonomously monitor the performance of the Linux kernel on a daily basis,[8]Fedora Rawhide[9] and Ubuntu.[10]

PTS Desktop Live[edit]

PTS Desktop Live was a stripped down x Linux distribution, which included Phoronix Test Suite . It was designed for testing/benchmarking computers from a LiveDVD / LiveUSB environment.[11]


Phodevi (Phoronix Device Interface) is a library that provides a clean, stable, platform-independent API for accessing software and hardware information.

Phoronix is a technology website that offers insights regarding the development of the Linux kernel, product reviews, interviews, and news regarding free and open-source software by monitoring the Linux kernel mailing list or interviews.

Phoronix was started in June by Michael Larabel, who currently serves as the owner and editor-in-chief.


Founded on 5 June ,[12] Phoronix started as a website with a handful of hardware reviews and guides,[13][14] moving to articles covering operating systems based on Linux and open source software around the start of , such as Ubuntu, Fedora, SUSE[15] and Mozilla (Firefox/Thunderbird).[16] Phoronix heavily focuses on benchmarking hardware running Linux, with a heavy slant towards graphics articles that monitor and compare free and open-source graphics device drivers and Mesa 3D with AMD's and Nvidia's proprietary graphics device drivers. In June the website added forums in addition to news content.[17] On 20 April , Phoronix redesigned its website,[18] and began Solaris hardware reviews and news in addition to Linux content.[19]

Phoronix benchmarks have been cited by a number of other technical publications such as CNET News[20][21]

OpenBenchmarking[edit] is a web-based service created to work with the Phoronix Test Suite. It is a collaborative platform that allows users to share their hardware and software benchmarks through an organized online interface.[22]

Release history[edit]

On 5 June , Phoronix Test Suite was released under the codename Trondheim.[23] This release was made up of 57 test profiles and 23 test suites.[24]

On 3 September , Phoronix Test Suite was released with support for the OpenSolaris operating system[25] and a module framework accompanied by tests focusing upon new areas[26] and many new test profiles.

Phoronix Test Suite includes a graphical user interface (GUI) using GTK+ written using the PHP-GTK bindings.

includes MATISK benchmarking module and initial support for the GNU Hurd.
