Frequently Asked Support Questions
If you do not find your question listed below, please
contact SPEC support.
Please note that only the most recent version of the
benchmark software is supported; technical support for
versions prior to the current one is not provided.
- Is there a Linux version of SPECviewperf 12?
- At this time, there is no Linux version planned. The membership of
the SPECgpc project group, the developers of SPECviewperf, have made
ongoing development and updating of the Windows version the central
priority. Currently, there is only one viewset, maya-04, based on an
application that runs on Linux. SPECgpc welcomes any individual or
organization that would like to contribute the work required to port the
benchmark to Linux.
- I am running the benchmark in a virtual machine environment and
the benchmark stops with the error message "The system memory must be a
minimum of 8GB to run SPECViewperf". My system has more than the minimum amount
of memory, so why am I getting this error?
- Viewperf uses the Windows Management Instrumentation interface to
query certain information on the system. When this query is made inside
a virtual machine the result is yielding a zero value which causes
Viewperf to exit. Future versions of Viewperf will fix the issue however
prior to that SPECviewperf
version 11 should work.
