OSDL is trying to provide something like this for the 2.5 kernel. It is
an interest we have to provide this sort of data. We have been building
database workload information and generating test results from our STP
test framework.

We are in the midst of creating content for a Linux Stability Results
web page. There is
a great desire on our part to share good performance data for the kernel
as it evolves. I would like to ask you guys what would you like to
see on page like this? I feel that we could create a single site where
anyone can get access to performance and reliability information about
the Linux kernel as we move toward the 2.6 version.

The page is set up now so that anyone can contribute content to the page
by editing an html template file to point to test and performance data.
If anyone is interested in this concept, email me privately or
