During the BoF sessions of the OF Workshop 2009 in Montreal a session on High Performance Computing (HPC) was held.
Results of this session were:
- OF is often used in a HPC environment
- A collection of benchmarking results of OF on various hardware should be started to form a basis for
-- performance optimisation in the OF source code
-- hardware recommondations
As a short term goal, criteria for a universal benchmarking case need to be defined and the benchmarking case made available. Furthermore a questionnaire describing the performance crucial hardware components should be created to form a basis for analysis of benchmark results.
