PTDaemon.8.1 includes new support for Windows usbtmc using Keysight drivers and the Hioki PW3335 (single channel) power measurement device.
Other major updates in spec accel.2 include the ability to add and change directives within the OpenMP and OpenACC suites to expose more parallelism for peak performance testing, and revised applications in the OpenACC suite to allow for successful GNU compiling.
It has now reduced memory requirements for the Director when signing results files and reduced the size of the result output for large systems or clusters.05/23/2017: spec's Research Group has issued a call for nominations for the Kaivalya Dixit Distinguished Dissertation Award recognizing outstanding doctoral dissertations in the field of computer benchmarking, performance evaluation, and experimental system analysis.Please see the important dates for abstract and paper submission and notification schedules.Spec accel software that adds a suite of OpenMP applications for measuring the performance of systems using hardware accelerator devices and supporting software.The suite is available now, with licensees of earlier versions of the CPU suites eligible for a discounted upgrade price.06/20/2017: Due to a known issue in Microsoft Windows Server 2016 memory management, sert will not be supported on el cuerpo humano con pipo that operating system until a fix is made available.The, sPECjbb2015 benchmark has been updated to version.01.CPU2017 contains 43 individual benchmarks organized into four suites.
Topics of interest include: performance modeling of software; performance and software development processes/paradigms; performance measurement, monitoring and analysis; benchmarking; run-time performance management; power and performance, energy efficiency; performance modeling and evaluation in different environments and application domains; and other topics related to performance of software.
Applications that make it through the entire search program will be incorporated into a new benchmark currently called spec MPI accel.
