FFTE is a package by Daisuke Takahashi to compute Discrete Fourier Transforms of 1-, 2- and 3- dimensional sequences of length (2^p)*(3^q)*(5^r).

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark ffte.

Revision History

pts/ffte-1.2.1   [View Source]   Tue, 29 Sep 2020 10:43:28 GMT
Only build speed3d test that is used rather than make all to avoid a code issue elsewhere in codebase with latest GCC Gfortran.

pts/ffte-1.2.0   [View Source]   Sun, 27 Sep 2020 14:17:57 GMT
Update against FFTE 7.0, switch to speed3d for more demanding test.

pts/ffte-1.1.0   [View Source]   Sun, 04 Mar 2018 11:35:47 GMT
Update against FFTE 6.0, add Windows support.

pts/ffte-1.0.1   [View Source]   Sat, 07 Apr 2012 21:19:21 GMT
Syncing fix.

pts/ffte-1.0.0   [View Source]   Sat, 07 Apr 2012 21:09:37 GMT
Initial commit of a basic FFTE 5.0 test profile.

Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (FFTE 7.0 - Test: N=256, 1D Complex FFT Routine) has an average run-time of 2 minutes. By default this test profile is set to run at least 3 times but may increase if the standard deviation exceeds pre-defined defaults or other calculations deem additional runs necessary for greater statistical accuracy of the result.
