CEED Benchmarks

This repository contains bake-off/benchmark problems and other tests for performance evaluation of high-order kernels on HPC architectures developed in the ECP co-design Center for Efficient Exascale Discretizations (CEED).

The repository is part of the CEED software suite, a collection of software benchmarks, miniapps, libraries and APIs for efficient exascale discretizations based on high-order finite element and spectral element methods. See for more information and source code availability.

The CEED research is supported by the Exascale Computing Project (17-SC-20-SC), a collaborative effort of two U.S. Department of Energy organizations (Office of Science and the National Nuclear Security Administration) responsible for the planning and preparation of a capable exascale ecosystem, including software, applications, hardware, advanced system engineering and early testbed platforms, in support of the nation's exascale computing imperative.

Building and Running the Benchmarks

Required tools

  • bash
  • make, cmake (for some packages)
  • git
  • wget or curl

Sample use

First, you may need to create a configuration for your machine, e.g. by copying and modifying one of the existing machine-configs/*.sh files.

./ --config vulcan --compiler gcc --build "metis hypre mfem"
./ --config vulcan --compiler gcc --run tests/mfem_bps/

Equivalent short version:

./ -c vulcan -m gcc -b "metis hypre mfem"
./ -c vulcan -m gcc -r tests/mfem_bps/

Note that any packages required by the tests will be downloaded and built automatically, i.e. there is no need to explicitly pre-build any packages by running the script with the --build option.

To see a list of the available configs use ./ without any options or generally use ./ --help for help. These configs correspond to the scripts machine-configs/<name>.sh.

To see the available compilers for a config use ./ --config <name>.

For test-specific details, see the file in the corresponding tests/<test-suite> subdirectory.
