Abstract

Obtaining maximum utilization of parallel systems continues to be an active area of research and development. This article outlines a new benchmark, called the Effective System Performance (ESP) test, designed to provide a utilization metric that is transferable between systems and illuminate the effects of various scheduling parameters. Results with discussion are presented for the Cray T3E and IBM SP systems together with insights obtained from simulation.
