Title: Scalable Computer Performance and Analysis (Hierarchical INTegration)

Abstract

HINT is a program to measure a wide variety of scalable computer systems. It is capable of demonstrating the benefits of using more memory or processing power, and of improving communications within the system. HINT can be used for measurement of an existing system, while the associated program ANALYTIC HINT can be used to explain the measurements or as a design tool for proposed systems.

Related Software:
HINT supercedes the earlier SLALOM program; it complements or replaces other benchmark programs such as LINPACK or STREAM which do not have comparable scability. Public-domain software is used to access hardware performance counters. Graphics software is also required; most public-domain or commercial packages may be used.
