WRF

WRF, the Weather Research and Forecasting Model, is a "next-generation mesoscale numerical weather prediction system designed for both atmospheric research and operational forecasting applications. It features two dynamical cores, a data assimilation system, and a software architecture supporting parallel computation and system extensibility."

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

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

WRF 4.2.2

Input: conus 2.5km

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 393 public results since 27 April 2021 with the latest data as of 19 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 (WRF 4.2.2 - Input: conus 2.5km) has an average run-time of 3 hours, 35 minutes. By default this test profile is set to run at least 1 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.
