IXPUG BoF at SC21 



Best Practices for Benchmarking Diverse Architectures with Varied Workloads 

 

Location: SC21 Virtual Platform
  
Date: Wednesday, 17 November 2021, 12:15pm - 1:15pm CST
 
Event Description:

This BoF, organized by the Intel eXtreme Performance Computing Users Group, will focus on sharing expertise in benchmarking computing systems across a variety of homogeneous and heterogeneous architectures with a variety of workloads. With increasing heterogeneity, the accurate and adequate comparison of performance across architectures and applications has become a growing challenge. This BoF will explore current approaches and best practices for benchmarking heterogeneous systems and exotic architectures, with the goal of identifying a unified set of principles and practices that can be leveraged to produce benchmarking results that are appropriate for direct comparison across sites, architectures, and applications.
