TensorFlow

This is a benchmark of the TensorFlow deep learning framework using the TensorFlow reference benchmarks (tensorflow/benchmarks with tf_cnn_benchmarks.py). Note with the Phoronix Test Suite there is also pts/tensorflow-lite for benchmarking the TensorFlow Lite binaries too.

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

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

TensorFlow 2.10

Device: CPU - Batch Size: 16 - Model: VGG-16

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 75 public results since 7 October 2022 with the latest data as of 5 November 2022.

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 (TensorFlow 2.10 - Device: CPU - Batch Size: 16 - Model: VGG-16) has an average run-time of 17 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.
