With the release of
OMP2012, the OMP2001 benchmark will begin the retirement
process. Results for OMP2001 will be accepted until January 16, 2013. After that
date, only OMP2012 result submissions will be accepted.
SPEC OMP (OpenMP Benchmark Suite) is SPEC's first
benchmark suite for evaluating performance based on OpenMP
SPEC OMP continues the SPEC tradition of giving HPC users the most
objective and representative benchmark suite for measuring the
performance of SMP (shared memory multi-processor) systems.
The current version of the OMP suite is V3.2. This version
is equivalent to the previous version, 3.1c,
but includes clarification on licensing for some of the benchmarks.
Licensees of OMP2001 V3.0 and V3.1 are eligible for an upgrade to
V3.2; contact the SPEC office
with your license number for information on obtaining the upgrade.
Result submissions using version 3.0 are no longer being accepted;
all submitted results must now use version 3.1 or later.

SPEC OMP Benchmark Suite Highlights
The benchmarks are adapted from SPEC CPU2000 and contributions to its
The focus is to deliver systems performance to real scientific and
The size and runtime reflect the needs of engineers and researchers to
model large complex tasks.
Two levels of workload characterize the performance of medium and large
Tools based on the SPEC CPU2000 toolset make these the easiest ever HPC
tests to run.
These benchmarks place heavy demands on systems and memory.
Text, HTML, PDF, PostScript file outputs for the SPEC OMPM2001 and
OMPL2001 metrics; includes all of the results submitted to SPEC from
the SPEC member companies and other licensees of the benchmark.
Flag and Source Disclosures
Explanations from the testers elaborating on any cryptic flags in the
results' notes sections, and any source code modifications provided
for peak performance results.
Approved Alternate Source Codes
Some of the results submitted to SPEC and published on www.spec.org use
alternate benchmark source code and/or third-party alternate software
approved by SPEC. Licensees of the OMP benchmark suite may obtain the
alternate source codes by sending an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
