Next: Conclusions Up: HPF Compiler Benchmarks Previous: Objectives


The synthetic compiler benchmark suite described here is an addition to the benchmark kernels and applications described in chapter 4 and 5. It is not meant as a tool to evaluate the overall performance of the compiler generated codes. It has been introduced as an aid for compiler developers and implementators to address some selected aspect of the HPF compilation process. In the current version, the suite does not comprise a comprehensive sample of HPF codes. Actually, it addresses only the HPF subset. Hopefully, this way, we will contribute to the establishment of a systematic compiler benchmarking methodology. We intend to continue our effort to develop a complete, fully representative HPF benchmark suite.
