UPDATED: ExampleVM scripts and documentation available

(1/6) > >>

The members of SPEC's Virtualization Subcommittee are pleased to announce the availability of an ExampleVM environment for the SPECvirt_sc2013 benchmark.  This ExampleVM environment includes documentation and scripts to help configure the six virtual machines needed in a SPECvirt_sc2013 tile as well as a client virtual machine.  Even if the configuration is not exactly the same as one your are trying to set up, having a working example for comparison is a valuable tool to aid you in setting up your own environment.

Attached to this message you will find three files.  Start with the html document SPECvirt_sc2013-ExampleVM-Setup-Guide-v1.04.html and it will tell you how to use the other two files.

The versions of software referenced in the SPECvirt_sc2013-ExampleVM-Setup-Guide-v1.04.html document represent a known working combination of software and are used to build a working environment for example purposes only. SPEC does not endorse the software used in this example and the fact that these versions are used in this document does not mean they would be compliant for submitting an official SPECvirt_sc2013 result. Please consult the SPECvirt_sc2013 Run and Reporting Rules to check on software version compliance.

We hope you find this ExampleVM environment useful.

NOTE:  The scripts below have been updated.  If you have previously downloaded the 1.00, 1.01, 1.02, or 1.03 versions of the ExampleVM documentation and scripts you will want to download and use the new 1.04 versions.

why this document not contain Multiple  tile? if i want to set up new tile (VM + client),what can i do?please provide extra scripts and document.Thanks!

Thanks for this feedback. We're working on it now, so look for a reply here in the next day or so.


Thanks for your reply!  the next day ? er...But three days have passed.

If you have the 1st tile configured and are able to do a complete successful run, to add a tile I recommend that you clone the VMs of the 1st tile; then update IP addresses for the new tile's VMs.

As mentioned in the section 2.3 of the User Guide at, you will have to run wafgen with appropriate TILEINDEX for each tile.

Update to example document and scripts may be delayed depending on support availability. The benchmark design document and user guides have all the information to setup and run the benchmark. The example document and scripts is to just help you setup the 1st tile to understand the benchmark design, setup steps, config, and result. If you have any specific issue getting the 2nd tile to work, please do not hesitate to start a new forum post.

Thank you for your patience.
