New Linux Benchmarks To Run This Weekend

If you have some extra CPU time this weekend, why not try out one of our new/updated test profiles and share your Linux hardware/software performance benchmarks with the community?

Phoronix Test Suite 4.8.5 was released a week ago, but with any PTS3/PTS4 installation you can fire up some new tests.

A month ago I wrote about HPC Challenge coming to the Phoronix Test Suite. Since then, there's been several updates to the HPCC test profile. If you want to try it out, it's best to be on PTS 4.8.5 and then simply run phoronix-test-suite benchmark hpcc. There's also various (optional) tunables for your libraries, etc. The HPCC test profile appears in very good shape now and I can confirm it scales very nicely from small ARM platforms to single-socket Intel Haswell systems all the way up to a 256-core 1TB RAM super-computer.


Also worth trying out is the Open-Porous-Media test profile. It's been significantly updated against the latest OPM code and works well as a great CPU/RAM benchmark. The OPM Project is very interesting and the benchmark provides a very real-world workload for numerous industries. It's simple as running phoronix-test-suite benchmark open-porous-media.

The benchmark results shared on this page are from some sample HPCC/OPM runs done on a few different systems this weekend. See the 1311307-SO-INTELAMDL56 result file. Feel free to run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1311307-SO-INTELAMDL56 to see how your own system compares to the different AMD/Intel setups.

Some other automated benchmark improvements include small updates to Parboil with its OpenCL and OpenMP benchmarking, CompileBench received a download fix, Tiobench and qVDPAUtest were fixed up by a NVIDIA engineer, and due to the recent Windows 8.1 vs. Ubuntu Linux benchmarks the Unigine-Valley and Unigine-Heaven test profiles were made to work on Windows.

More recent test profile additions/updates can be found via openbenchmarking.org/changes. Also of interest to many Phoronix readers would be the OpenBenchmarking.org November 2013 Highlights.

Any benchmarking questions or requests? Drop by our forums.
