Installation and Benchmarks with Phoronix test suite 8.2 under Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

The purpose of this article is to show you how you can test your machine – server or desktop with multiple benchmark tools. The easiest way to try some benchmarks is to use the great tool of Phoronix Test Suite, because it includes around 300 different benchmark utilities and running a test is just choosing it and then running it. No installation of additional software is required by the user. You can check for more info in their web site. Here we show you how easy is to install and run a tests:

sudo apt-get update -y
wget http://phoronix-test-suite.com/releases/repo/pts.debian/files/phoronix-test-suite_8.2.0_all.deb
sudo apt-get install autoreconf
sudo apt-get install ./phoronix-test-suite_8.2.0_all.deb

Below is the detailed explanation of where to download and how to install the tests suite:

STEP 1) Update your system

myuser@myuserpc:~$ sudo reboot

As you can see we have kernel update so you must reboot your machine.

STEP 2) Download the Phoronix Test Suite – latest version.

As of writing this article the latest version is 8.2.0. You can check the latest version here Go to the download page and copy the URL for the latest version – “Ubuntu/Debian Package” – a deb package is available. The deb package will install all the dependency required (or most of them).

myuser@myuserpc:~$ wget http://phoronix-test-suite.com/releases/repo/pts.debian/files/phoronix-test-suite_8.2.0_all.deb

STEP 3) Install the Phoronix Test Suite 8.2.0 and the additional dependency.

We used a freshly installed Ubuntu 16.04.5 and we discovered that after a successful installation you need an additional package “autoconf”, because all tools were failing with an error.

STEP 4) Run a simple benchmark

Here it is as simple as that to run a sysbench benchmark. We included all the output of the program you can see the shared URL, too. The test is named “sysbench-tests” – this is the name of the group, the unique name is also sysbench-tests, but if you run the test again you should set another unique name (let’s say you changed something like the kernel version) so you use the same name “sysbench-tests” for the result file and “sysbench-tests-KERNEL_VERSION” for “unique name to describe this test run / configuration”, so you can compare them.
We highlighted the lines the executed commands, answers to questions of the Phoronix Test Suite and the results from the benchmarks. The second part below shows the saved results and the name and the unique name – the difference between them and what we meant a sentence above.
