-LNT consists of two main parts, a server side web application for accessing and

-and submitting data.
-LNT uses a simple and extensible format for interchanging data between the

+LNT is designed to be a generic infastrcture for performance testing. The LNT
+software itself consists of two main parts, a web application for accessing and
+visualizing performance data, and command line utilities to allow users to
+generate and submit test results to the server.
+If you are an LLVM developer who is mostly interested in just using LNT to run
+the test-suite against some compiler, then you should fast forward to the

itself can be passed in one of several formats, including property lists and
