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-v1.03.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-v1.03.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, or 1.02 versions of the ExampleVM documentation and scripts you will want to download and use the new 1.03 versions.
