So I was browsing the Phoronix forum and came across the following discussion: Phoronix forum threadThe Phoronix Test Suite is the most comprehensive testing and benchmarking platform available that provides an extensible framework for which new tests can be easily added.
In which people ask the PTS devs to add Spring as a test.
Michael (PTS lead dev and the Phoronix founder) had this to say about it:
I'm still busy with that interview I did with Ton Roosendaal (Blender conference), I'm progressing but it's just a lot of work.Because I am always busy and have no experience with the Spring engine... If there is some Spring fan that wants to code the patch(es), go right ahead and then it will be in PTS like you guys are wanting.
But, just as an intellectual exercise, how difficult would it be to make a "nice benchmark / timed demo mode"? What would be the best way to approach this?
My second question is how useful a PTS based test/benchmark would be for Spring development?
The Phoronix Test Suite code can be downloaded with "git clone http://www.phorogit.com/repo/phoronix-test-suite.git". It seems to be written in php cli.
