Compiler Evaluation System
- The Ada Compiler Evaluation System (ACES) is a set of tools for assessing
the performance and usability of an Ada compiler on a specific operating
- Benchmark Gateway
International maintains a database of various benchmarks and results
including TPC, BAPCo, SPEC, Graphics Performance Characterization (GPC),
AIM Technology, and the Intel iCOMP® Ratings.
- Benchmarks and Workloads
For Embedded Processors
- An extension of material presented at MicroProcessor Forum '95; maintained
by Dennis Allison.
EDN Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC)
- The EDN Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC) works
collaboratively to develop a suite of performance benchmarks that
target key applications of embedded systems. These benchmarks help provide
customers an objective means of evaluating processors and controllers.
- The quest for the ultimate SPEC performance has also introduced new
compiler defects. This discussion of defects related to EQNTOTT-Specific
optimizations includes examples and source code.
- Intel Processor
and System Performance
- Intel performance information including iCOMP® Index results, tips
for maximizing system performance, and Pentium® Processor performance
- Jack Dongarra's list of Linpack
performance results for every computer ever manufactured, sorted by performance.
- Linux Benchmarks
- Results of BYTE UNIX Benchmarks for LINUX Pentium® processors.
Includes various configurations of clock speed, memory size, and disk controller.
- Application-specific benchmarks organized into topics covering Astronomy,
Astrophysics, Cosmology, Atmospheric Sciences, Biological Imaging, Chemical
Engineering, Chemistry, Computational Biology, Computational Fluid Dynamics,
General Relativity, Mathematics and Statistics, and Radio Astronomical
- NULLSTONE Automated Compiler Performance Analysis Tool
- The NULLSTONE Automated Compiler Performance Analysis Tool that uses a QA approach of test coverage and isolation to measure an optimizer. The NULLSTONE methodology increases compiler performance by:
* Isolating performance regressions and defects;
* Identifying opportunities for improvements;
* Establishing development completion criteria; and
* Providing detailed competitive data.
- OOPACK Kernels
- Four small programs that compare the relative performance of object-oriented
programming in C++ versus plain C-style code in C++. Includes performance
comparisons of the KAI Photon compiler with compilers from DEC, HP, SGI,
- Paradyn Parallel Performance
- The Paradyn Parallel Program Performance Tools project is exploring
new approaches to building scalable tools for parallel program performance.
The Performance Database Server
- Searchable performance database of benchmark results for Linpack, SPEC,
Dhrystone, Fhourstone, Flops, Hanoi, Heapsort, NAS Parallel Benchmark,
Nsieve, Sim, and TFFTdp.
Performance and Optimization Software
- Pittsburg Supercomputer Center collection of FORTRAN benchmarks designed
to evaluate vectorization capabilities.
- The Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation was formed to establish,
maintain, and endorse a standardized set of relevant benchmarks and metrics
for performance evaluation of modern computer systems. Includes information
about SPEC, how to join, and performance results that were published in
- TPC Benchmarks
- The Transaction Processing Performance Council is a non-profit corporation
founded to define transaction processing and database benchmarks. Includes
information about the TPC Organization, the benchmark, and a database of
- Ziff-Davis Benchmark Operation
- The Ziff-Davis Benchmark Operation (ZDBOp) is a division of the Ziff-Davis
Publishing Company. ZDBOp develops and supports the publicly available
benchmarks that all Ziff-Davis publications use. These benchmarks include
MacBench, NetBench, PC Bench, ServerBench, WinBench, and WinStone.
