RUBBoS is a bulletin board benchmark modeled after an online news forum like Slashdot. We originally considered using the Perl-based Slashcode, which is freely available, but we concluded that the code was too complex to serve as a benchmark. Instead, we implemented the essential bulletin board features of the Slashdot site in PHP. In particular, as in Slashcode, we support discussion threads. A discussion thread is a logical tree, containing a story at its root and a number of comments for that story, which may be nested. Users have two different levels of authorized access: regular user and moderator. Regular users browse and submit stories and comments. Moderators in addition review stories and rate comments.
