gcbd: 'GPU'/CPU Benchmarking in Debian-Based Systems
'GPU'/CPU Benchmarking on Debian-package based systems
This package benchmarks performance of a few standard linear algebra
operations (such as a matrix product and QR, SVD and LU decompositions)
across a number of different 'BLAS' libraries as well as a 'GPU' implementation.
To do so, it takes advantage of the ability to 'plug and play' different
'BLAS' implementations easily on a Debian and/or Ubuntu system. The current
- 'Reference BLAS' ('refblas') which are un-accelerated as a baseline
- Atlas which are tuned but typically configure single-threaded
- Atlas39 which are tuned and configured for multi-threaded mode
- 'Goto Blas' which are accelerated and multi-threaded
- 'Intel MKL' which is a commercial accelerated and multithreaded version.
As for 'GPU' computing, we use the CRAN package
For 'Goto Blas', the 'gotoblas2-helper' script from the ISM in Tokyo can be
used. For 'Intel MKL' we use the Revolution R packages from Ubuntu 9.10.
