The ESIF-HPC-2 Benchmark Suite

Christopher Chang, Ilene Carpenter, Wesley Jones

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


We describe the development of the ESIF-HPC-2 benchmark suite, a collection of kernel and application benchmark codes for measuring computational and I/O performance from single nodes to full HPC systems that was used for acceptance testing in our recent HPC procurement. The configurations of the benchmarks used for our system is presented. We also describe a set of "dimensions"that can be used to classify benchmarks and assess coverage of a suite systematically. The collection is offered cost-free as a GitHub repository for general usage and further development.
