Title: Los Alamos National Laboratory computer benchmarking 1982

Abstract

Evaluating the performance of computing machinery is a continual effort of the Computer Research and Applications Group of the Los Alamos National Laboratory. This report summarizes the results of the group's benchmarking activities performed between October 1981 and September 1982, presenting compilation and execution times as well as megaflop rates for a set of benchmark codes. Tests were performed on the following computers: Cray Research, Inc. (CRI) Cray-1S; Control Data Corporation (CDC) 7600, 6600, Cyber 73, Cyber 825, Cyber 835, Cyber 855, and Cyber 205; Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) VAX 11/780 and VAX 11/782; and Apollo Computer, Inc., Apollo.

  • Evaluating the performance of computing machinery is an ongoing effort of the Computer Research and Applications Group of the Los Alamos National Laboratory. This report summarizes the results of benchmarking activities performed between October 1982 and September 1983. Compilation and execution times as well as megaflop rates for a set of benchmark codes are reported. Tests were performed on the following computers: Cray Research, Inc. (CRI) Cray-1S; Control Data Corporation (CDC) 7600, Cyber 825, and Cyber 205; Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) VAX 11/780 and VAX 11/782.
  • Performance evaluation of computing machinery is a continuing project of the Computer Research and Applications Group at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. This report presents compilation and execution speeds and histograms for a representative set of benchmark programs. The results of these performance evaluation tests were obtained on the following computers: Cray Research, Inc. (CRI) Cray-1 and Cray-1S and Control Data Corporation (CDC) 7600, 6600, Cyber 73, and Cyber 205.
  • This report summarizes the results of computer performance evaluations as measured by the Computer Research and Applications Group of the Los Alamos National Laboratory. The benchmarks were conducted between December 1986 and July 1988. Important characteristics of the machines tested are given, and execution times or megaflop rates for a set of portable Fortran 77 benchmark codes are listed. A brief description of the codes is included. Tests were performed on the following computers: Cray Research Inc. CRAY-1S, X-MP/24,X-MP/48, X-MP/416,X-MP/SE, Y-MP/832, and CRAY-2; ETA Systems Inc.
