Description

I recently wanted to benchmark one of my machines that had Windows on it, so rather than installing Arch onto a new hard drive, I installed Antergos onto a USB drive with XFCE and Phoronix Test Suite. This seemed like a more up to date alternative to the Phoronix Test Suite Desktop Live distro that seems to be dead in the water.

This is a simple guide for installing and using Phoronix on Arch Linux.

Prepare the Environment

  • Make sure they system is up to date:
    pacman -Syu
    

Install Phoronix Test Suite

  • Install PTS:
    pacman -S phoronix-test-suite
    
  • Install a few php extensions and test dependencies:
    pacman -S php-{gd, sqlite} sdl sdl_net sdl_gfx sdl_image sdl_ttf yasm boost numactl gcc-fortran openmpi
    
  • Edit the php.ini file:
    nano /etc/php/php.ini
    
    • And uncomment the following extensions to enable them:
      extension=bz2.so
      extension=gd.so
      extension=sockets.so
      extension=sqlite3.so
      
  • List the available suites:
    phoronix-test-suite list-available-suites
    
  • List the available tests:
    phoronix-test-suite list-available-tests
    
  • Run the pts/cpu suite:
    phoronix-test-suite benchmark pts/cpu
    
  • Start the GUI:
    phoronix-test-suite gui
    
  • Check the php config for any problems:
    phoronix-test-suite php-conf
    
  • Run phoronix from the command line interactively:
    phoronix-test-suite interactive
