HPGMG 1.0: A Benchmark for Ranking High Performance Computing Systems
This document provides an overview of the benchmark ? HPGMG ? for ranking large scale general purpose computers for use on the Top500 list . We provide a rationale for the need for a replacement for the current metric HPL, some background of the Top500 list and the challenges of developing such a metric; we discuss our design philosophy and methodology, and an overview of the specification of the benchmark. The primary documentation with maintained details on the specification can be found at hpgmg.org and the Wiki and benchmark code itself can be found in the repository https://bitbucket.org/hpgmg/hpgmg.
