HIPERFIT Seminar Talk: The HIPERmark Benchmark Toolkit
Presenter: Thorkil Værge, MSc student, DIKU/University of Copenhagen
Host: Martin Elsman/Cosmin Oancea
In this talk, we present the HIPERmark Benchmark Toolkit, an infrastructure for comparing and visualising performance tradeoffs. The infrastructure can automatically run several different benchmark implementations with different datasets and with different compile time and runtime variables and compare the performances across many different dimensions. Using this tool, it becomes easy, for example, to see how the performance of an OpenMP implementation scales as a function of the number of threads used, and also to see how this scaling differs when computing with single precision vs. double precision. The tool automates visualisation of the results in user-configurable graphs. The user can also export the results and process the data in an external program such as MatLab.
