Looks great!
I think adding pictures would be nice for the blog.
Thank you

> DPDK Community Lab Publishes Relative Performance Testing Results
> 
> The DPDK Community Lab is an open, independent testing resource for
> the DPDK project. Its purpose is to perform automated testing on
> incoming patch submissions, to ensure the performance and quality of
> DPDK is maintained. Participation in the lab is open to all DPDK
> project participants.
> 
> For some time now, the DPDK Community Lab has been gathering
> performance deltas using the single-core packet I/O layer 2 throughput
> test from DTS for each patch series submitted to DPDK compared to the
> master branch. We are pleased to announce that the Lab has recently
> been allowed to make these results public. These results are also now
> published to Patchwork as they are automatically generated. These
> results currently contain Mellanox and Intel devices, and the lab is
> able to support hardware from any DPDK participants wishing to support
> these testing efforts.
> 
> To view these results, you can go to DPDK Community Lab Dashboard via
> the following link: https://lab.dpdk.org. The dashboard lists an
> overview of all active patch series and their results. Detailed
> results can be viewed by clicking on the patch series. If a patch
> fails to merge into master, a build log will show to help identify any
> issues. If a patch cleanly merges into master, performance delta
> results will show for each participating member.
> 
> The Lab is hosted by the University of New Hampshire InterOperability
> Laboratory, as a neutral, third party location. This provides a secure
> environment for hosting equipment and generating unbiased results for
> all participating vendors. Lab participants, i.e. companies hosting
> equipment in the testing, can securely access their equipment through
> a VPN, allowing for maintenance and performance tuning, as the DPDK
> project progresses.
> 
> The Lab works by polling the Patchwork API. When new patches are
> submitted, the CI server merges them with the master branch and
> generates a tarball. Each participating system unpacks and installs
> the DPDK tarball and then runs the performance testing against this
> DPDK build. When all systems have finished testing, the CI gathers the
> results into our internal database to be shown on the Dashboard, and
> sends final reports to Patchwork to show up on the submitted patch.
> This allows patch submitters to utilize Patchwork to view their
> individual results, while also allowing anyone to quickly see an
> overview of results on the Dashboard. The system provides maintainers
> with positive confirmation of the stability and performance of the
> overall project.
> 
> In the future, we plan to open the Lab to more testing scenarios, such
> as performance testing of other features, beyond single-core packet
> I/O layer 2 throughput, and possibly running Unit Tests for DPDK.
> Additional features will be added to the Dashboard, such as showing
> graphs of the performance changes of master over time.
> 
> If your company would like to be involved, email the Continuous
> Integration group at ci@dpdk.org and dpdklab@iol.unh.edu.
