The Performance Assessment Workbench addresses the lack of a well-documented, simple-to-install and -execute system benchmark that contains specific tests for accelerators such as NVIDIA GPUs and Intel Xeon Phi co-processors.
The Performance Assessment Workbench (PAW) is a suite of simple codes designed
to test baseline performance in high-performance computing systems.
PAW provides the ability to establish a baseline performance quickly for any Linux cluster, and does so with well-documented code so that its results are understandable and trustworthy.
PAW provides a series of codes written in C and designed to test floating-point performance using BLAS routines, and MPI performance of both point-to-point and collective operations. It also provides specific codes to test NVIDIA GPU and Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor performance.
PAW is designed for academics and open centers to test the baseline performance of their computing systems in a transparent and straightforward manner.
