QMCPACK

QMCPACK is a modern high-performance open-source Quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) simulation code making use of MPI for this benchmark of the H20 example code. QMCPACK is an open-source production level many-body ab initio Quantum Monte Carlo code for computing the electronic structure of atoms, molecules, and solids. QMCPACK is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy.

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

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

QMCPACK 3.17.1

Input: Li2_STO_ae

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 270 public results since 29 October 2023 with the latest data as of 22 May 2024.

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.

Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (QMCPACK 3.17.1 - Input: Li2_STO_ae) has an average run-time of 14 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.
