Low-level benchmarks

The DEISA benchmark suite is mainly focused on applications. It doesn't explicitly contain low-level kernels. Nevertheless, a low level benchmark may still be important to assess an architecture by

  • stressing all the key components of the machine architecture (e.g., CPU, memory, and network),
  • measuring low-level raw performance (e.g., bandwidth and latency), and
  • reporting easy-to-interpret performance information.

For this purpose, we recommend to use HPC Challenge benchmark (HPCC), a low-level benchmark suite composed of seven kernels which assess both serial and parallel performance.
