A Bayesian Inference Benchmark Suite

If you find BayesSuite useful, please cite our paper:

Yu Wang, Yuhao Zhu, Glenn G. Ko, Brandon Reagen, Gu-Yeon Wei, and David Brooks. “Demystifying
Bayesian Inference Workloads.” International Symposium on Performance Analysis of Systems and
Software (ISPASS), 2019.

The paper profiles the computational characteristics of BayesSuite using single-core and multi-core CPU. It also has a last level cache miss prediction model based on the model and the datasets.

Getting Started

  1. After git clone this repo, please run
git submodule init
git submodule update
  1. To create BayesSuite and generate run scripts
cd scripts
  1. To install R packages
Rscript setup.R

Trouble Shooting

If getting publickey issues when running git submodule update, you need to generate a new SSH key and add it to the ssh-agent and add the new SSH key to your GitHub account.
