HPC Challenge

HPC Challenge (HPCC) is a cluster-focused benchmark consisting of the HPL Linpack TPP benchmark, DGEMM, STREAM, PTRANS, RandomAccess, FFT, and communication bandwidth and latency. This HPC Challenge test profile attempts to ship with standard yet versatile configuration/input files though they can be modified.

Supported install-time optional variables include $MPI_PATH, $MPI_INCLUDE, $MPI_CC, $MPI_LIBS, $LA_PATH, $LA_INCLUDE, $LA_LIBS, $CFLAGS, $LD_FLAGS, and $MPI_LD

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

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 349 public results since 8 August 2017 with the latest data as of 19 February 2021.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.
