As many of you know, Faban is a free and open source benchmark development and automation framework. It was originally developed at Sun Microsystems, Inc. which made it available to the community under the CDDL license.
With the architect and lead developer Akara Sucharitakul and myself no longer working at Oracle (not to mention the demise of the project website without notice), we decided to host it at http://www.faban.org. The website isn’t pretty but at least it hosts all the documentation, a downloadable kit and a pointer to the source on github. In the coming weeks, I will work on organizing the site. A big thanks to all the folks who expressed concern about the future of this project. With your help, we can continue to support it.
