On the upper left of the web site is now an item labeled “phoronix”. Clicking there returns a table with a long list of Phoronix benchmarks. For each I’ve recorded the description, scores when running on my Intel reference system, topdown metrics and if available analysis done.
It has taken a bit, but I now have a good set of reference workloads. Some of them have additional analysis pages and the overall “workload” page has about half of them with IPC and similar measurements.
This has let me try the breadth of my “topdown” tool to sample performance counters. It has also given me a broad survey of benchmarks available in Phoronix. I expect to incrementally update and perform analysis as Phoronix publishes benchmark articles using benchmarks I haven’t looked at in depth. However, I also expect the broad set is now done.
This lets me go in a number of directions including those mentioned in the “end of May” update, e.g. additional real life workloads, more fine grained micro-architectural analysis.
