Open Porous Media

This is a test of Open Porous Media, a set of open-source tools concerning simulation of flow and transport of fluids in porous media. This test profile depends upon MPI/Flow already being installed on the system. Install instructions at

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

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Open Porous Media

OPM Benchmark: Flow MPI Norne - Threads: 8 metrics for this test profile configuration based on 184 public results since 22 July 2020 with the latest data as of 7 February 2021.

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 data, the selected test / test configuration (Open Porous Media - OPM Benchmark: Flow MPI Norne - Threads: 8) has an average run-time of 10 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.
