    One feature that has been asked for repeatedly is the ability to run Linux-Bench remotely on a server without touching the underlying hardware.

    The requirements here are that you can boot to a LiveCD

    Step 1: Download the Ubuntu 14.04 LiveCD, mount it on the server (through iKVM or using a burned CD/DVD) and boot the server from the media

    Step 2: At the welcome screen select "Try Ubuntu"

    Step 3: Open a terminal window (the application name is Terminal)

    Step 4: Make yourself root
    Code:
    sudo su -
    Step 5: Install curl using:
    Code:
    apt-get install curl
    Step 6: Run the benchmark
    Code:
    bash <(curl -sk https://raw.githubusercontent.com/STH-Dev/linux-bench/master/linux-bench.sh)
    That is it!

    At the end of the run you will see a line that says "ref_link" and has a number next to it. You can use that ID number on http://linux-bench.com/parser.html and it will display benchmark results in a formatted web page. You can then share that ref_link with friends.

    Here is a quick video:

    Can you make a shorter URL? That one sucks.

    That is a great suggestion actually.

    The big issue is that we are still tweaking Linux-Bench ever so slightly. Let me see what I can do though. Maybe have a final version hosted at a more friendly URL then have that be the latest development version.
