FireHose suite of stream processing benchmarks.
FireHose is meant to invoke the imagery of drinking from a firehose of streaming data.

The main purpose of the FireHose Streaming Benchmarks is to enable comparison of streaming software and hardware, both quantitatively vis-a-vis the rate at which they can process data, and qualitatively by judging the effort involved to implement and run the benchmarks.
The benchmarks themsleves each have a generator and analytic. Code for the generators is provided and is meant to be run as-is. Reference implementations for the analytics are also provided; users are free to re-implement them for other streaming frameworks or to optimize them for their hardware.
The originators of FireHose are Karl Anderson and Steve Plimpton, who can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. The FireHose WWW Site at http://firehose.sandia.gov has more information as well as tabulated performance results.
