Revision History

pts/npb-1.4.1   [View Source]   Sat, 07 Mar 2020 12:22:08 GMT
Add --alow-run-as-root, ended up being missed until now.

pts/npb-1.4.0   [View Source]   Wed, 28 Aug 2019 11:43:04 GMT
Update against upstream NPB 3.4, add new test cases.

pts/npb-1.3.1   [View Source]   Tue, 15 Jan 2019 11:37:52 GMT
Update against upstream NPB 3.1.1

pts/npb-1.3.0   [View Source]   Fri, 09 Nov 2018 12:39:01 GMT
Use physical core count rather than logical cores to avoid MPI breaking on high core count systems with SMT.

pts/npb-1.2.4   [View Source]   Sat, 09 Sep 2017 10:30:50 GMT
ft.B not ft.C size

pts/npb-1.2.3   [View Source]   Sat, 09 Sep 2017 10:15:47 GMT
Update MPI handling, add some larger test sizes

pts/npb-1.2.2   [View Source]   Thu, 25 Aug 2016 13:51:56 GMT
Update CFLAGS handling

pts/npb-1.2.1   [View Source]   Thu, 27 Nov 2014 18:42:33 GMT
MG.B and IS.D do not build / run properly on modern systems.

pts/npb-1.2.0   [View Source]   Tue, 05 Nov 2013 22:57:21 GMT
Working on new version of NPB test that makes use of some of the HPCC test profile MPI improvements and other multi-core/cluster work for better benchmarking. Seems to have MPI rank errors right now though for NPB on this build.

pts/npb-1.1.1   [View Source]   Sun, 10 Jun 2012 19:11:43 GMT
Remove tests not in MPI NPB version.

pts/npb-1.1.0   [View Source]   Sun, 10 Jun 2012 16:56:25 GMT
Switch to the MPI version of NPB benchmarks.

pts/npb-1.0.0   [View Source]   Mon, 06 Dec 2010 15:00:08 GMT
Initial import into OpenBenchmarking.org

Analyze Test Configuration:

NAS Parallel Benchmarks 3.4

Test / Class: BT.C

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 705 public results since 28 August 2019 with the latest data as of 18 January 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.
