Abstract

We present a new benchmark suite for parallel computers. SPEComp targets mid-size parallel servers. It includes a number of science/engineering and data processing applications. Parallelism is expressed in the OpenMP API. The suite includes two data sets, Medium and Large, of approximately 1.6 and 4 GB in size. Our overview also describes the organization developing SPEComp, issues in creating OpenMP parallel benchmarks, the benchmarking methodology underlying SPEComp, and basic performance characteristics.
