Synthetic Benchmark for PRACE Tier-0 Curie System is a task at PRACE 1IP project (Task 7.4). It aims to benchmark the performance of a cluster-type Curie system which is one of largest HPC systems serviced by PRACE. From SNIC, Soon-Heum “Jeff” Ko joined this project from July 1st, 2011. He takes the role of performing some benchmark analyses by using HPCC, P-SNAP and mixedMode tools.
HPCC is a famous benchmark tool which consists of 7 sub-benchmarks, including a famous HPL tool which measures Linpack performance and STREAM benchmark which measures the sustainable memory bandwidth. Full description is here:
P-SNAP is a tool to measure the system noise. Full description is here:
mixedMode is a tool to instrument communication bandwidths of different communication modes (collective and point-to-point communications in various configurations). Full description is here:
