    Phoronix: You Can Now Benchmark The ArrayFire GPU Library With The Phoronix Test Suite

    If you have some spare GPU cycles this weekend, ArrayFire can now be benchmarked via the Phoronix Test Suite...

    Hey Guys,

    I tried to do a pts install of the arrayfire benchmark, and the install fails with a "pushd: not found" due to something about the shell being invoked not providing the pushd/popd builtins for me (pushd/popd are evidently bash extensions to sh, while at least in ubuntu 16.10, sh links to dash).

    The below diff fixes it up for me.

    Code:
    diff --git a/install.sh b/install.sh
    index 31e1865..48583ea 100644
    --- a/install.sh
    +++ b/install.sh

     then

    Thanks nevion! I will do some debugging later today when I can.

    labyrinth153 I'll see if I can shine a light in the right direction - if you can compile arrayfire itself in a manner similar to the build the script like below that's probably most of the way towards the test executing. Make sure you set OpenCL_INCLUDE_DIR appropriately. After that see if you can play with the core benchmark utility here: https://github.com/nevion/arrayfire-benchmark . There's a few awk and perl commands scrubbing the test results too so those may be an additional failure point.

    Code:
    git clone -b pts --recursive https://github.com/nevion/arrayfire.git arrayfire_source
    cd arrayfire_source
    git submodule init
    git submodule update
    # Compile ArrayFire and install it to a local directory
    mkdir -p arrayfire_source/build
    cd arrayfire_source/build
    cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$HOME/arrayfire \
        -DBUILD_EXAMPLES=OFF -DBUILD_DOCS=OFF -DBUILD_TEST=OFF \
        -DBUILD_GRAPHICS=OFF -DOpenCL_INCLUDE_DIR=${OpenCL_INCLUDE_DIR} ..
    make -j12
    It's kind of a one shot deal on the of build of arrayfire - so if it fails to build you may also need to clean stale build products (e.g. rm -r ~/.phoronix-test-suite/installed-tests/local/arrayfire , or wherever it manages to get installed), then run the build again
