Quicksilver

Quicksilver is a proxy application that represents some elements of the Mercury workload by solving a simplified dynamic Monte Carlo particle transport problem. Quicksilver is developed by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and this test profile currently makes use of the OpenMP CPU threaded code path.

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

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Quicksilver 20230818

Input: CORAL2 P1

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 202 public results since 6 January 2024 with the latest data as of 4 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.

Does It Scale Well With Increasing Cores?

Yes, based on the automated analysis of the collected public benchmark data, this test / test settings does generally scale well with increasing CPU core counts. Data based on publicly available results for this test / test settings, separated by vendor, result divided by the reference CPU clock speed, grouped by matching physical CPU core count, and normalized against the smallest core count tested from each vendor for each CPU having a sufficient number of test samples and statistically significant data.
