NPB, NAS Parallel Benchmarks, is a benchmark developed by NASA for high-end computer systems. This test profile currently uses the MPI version of NPB. This test profile offers selecting the different NPB tests/problems and varying problem sizes.
To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark npb.
* Uploading of benchmark result data to OpenBenchmarking.org is always optional (opt-in) via the Phoronix Test Suite for users wishing to share their results publicly. ** Data based on those opting to upload their test results to OpenBenchmarking.org and users enabling the opt-in anonymous statistics reporting while running benchmarks from an Internet-connected platform. *** Test profile page view reporting began March 2021. Data current as of 17 June 2021.
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.

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 22 public results since 17 September 2019 with the latest data as of 1 April 2021.
Additional benchmark metrics will come after OpenBenchmarking.org has collected a sufficient data-set.
Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (NAS Parallel Benchmarks 3.4 - Test / Class: LU.A) 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.
Based on public OpenBenchmarking.org results, the selected test / test configuration has an average standard deviation of 1.1%.
