Benchmarking & Estimating

There are two was to submit results to the Irish Supercomputer List: Benchmarking and Estimating.

  1. Benchmarking: The Irish Supercomputer List uses the Linpack benchmark, just as the Top500 does. For Linpack benchmark information including downloads and documentation, please see: HPL – A Portable Implementation of the High-Performance Linpack Benchmark for Distributed-Memory ComputersThe Linpack FAQ
  2. Estimating: You can also use the TOP500 HPL Calculator, or we can run the estimate for you. For more, see this article at InsideHPC. For systems with GPU acceleration, please contact us. We can work out the performance.

All systems ranked on the Irish Supercomputer List have their performance numbers annotated as to whether they were obtained through benchmarking or estimating.
