SPEC OMP® 2001 (RETIRED:
the release of the SPEC OMP® 2012
benchmark suite, the SPEC OMP® 2001
benchmark suite has been retired. Benchmark results were accepted until
January 16, 2013. After that date, only SPEC OMP® 2012
benchmark result submissions will be accepted. To purchase a copy of
the SPEC OMP® 2001 benchmark software,
please contact SPEC for assistance.
The SPEC OMP® (OpenMP)
benchmark suite is the first one for evaluating performance based on
applications. The benchmark 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 is V3.2, which is equivalent to the previous
version, 3.1c, but includes clarification
on licensing for some of the benchmarks. Licensees of the SPEC OMP® 2001
V3.0 and V3.1 benchmarks are eligible for an upgrade to V3.2; contact
the SPEC office with your license number for information on obtaining

Benchmark Suite Highlights
- The benchmarks are adapted from SPEC CPU 2000 benchmark and contributions
to its search program.
- The focus is to deliver systems performance to real scientific
and engineering applications.
- 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 sized systems.
- Tools based on the SPEC CPU2000 benchmark toolset make these the
easiest ever HPC tests to run.
- These benchmarks place heavy demands on systems and memory.
- Includes the SPECompM® 2001 performance
metric and the SPECompL® 2001 performance
metric, which are based on compute-intensive, parallel-processing
applications provided as source code containing OpenMP directives.
- Submitted Results
- Text, HTML, PDF, PostScript file outputs for the SPECompM® 2001
and SPECompL® 2001 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 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 benchmark suite may
obtain the alternate source codes by sending an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
