U of Tennessee Creates Evaluation/Benchmarking Website

Source: HPCWire, April 25, 1997

The University of Tennessee has organized a World Wide Web site devoted to performance evaluation and benchmarking, called BenchWeb. The URL for BenchWeb is

BenchWeb is a starting point for finding information about computer systems performance benchmarking efforts, benchmark results, and benchmark codes. Contributions of URLs to the site from users are welcome.

To enable easy navigation, the performance evaluation/benchmark information is organized into several different views. Users may browse by platform, by vendor or benchmark organization, or by application area. An alphabetical list of all links on the site is also provided.

Categories of platforms for which performance evaluation and benchmark information is available include high performance computers, workstations, and personal computers. Pointers are provided to downloadable source code for many different benchmarks, such as NAS, ParkBench, LINPACK, Top500, and Whetstone from Netlib.

Information is also available on BenchWeb about conferences, papers, and newsgroups related to performance evaluation and benchmarking.

BenchWeb is part of the National HPCC Software Exchange (NHSE). The NHSE is a distributed collection of software, documents, data, and information of interest to the high performance and parallel computing community. The NHSE seeks to actively promote software sharing and reuse within and across HPCC agency programs on a sustainable basis. The NHSE facilitates the development of discipline-oriented software and document repositories, and promotes contributions and use via the WWW. Development of the NHSE is being carried out by the Center for Research on Parallel Computation (CRPC). Copyright 1997 HPCwire.
