PARSEC is the most important CPU-bound benchmark for systems. It is huge and hard to install because it needs lots of 3-part libs. PARSEC download link for 3.0 version: http://parsec.cs.princeton.edu/download.htm#parsec Answered by harryxiyou. I remembered I added the answer yesterday night but I could not see the answer currently. Anyway, let me add the answer […]
NAS benchmark link: http://www.nas.nasa.gov/publications/npb.html For Ubuntu, remember to install gfortran (sudo apt-get install gfortran) and change config/make.def to install NAS benchmark. Other distros are similar. Answered by harryxiyou.
Benchmarks are important to understand the performance and quantitative and qualitative comparison of different systems. Many analytic frameworks, such as Hive, Impala and Shark, are designed and implemented these years and become fundamental software for processing big data. How to benchmark these big data analytic systems is an interesting problem. The Big Data Benchmark ∞ […]
MapReduce is a well-known programming model designed for generating and processing large data. There are various MapReduce implementations. One widely known and used one may be Hadoop. Benchmarking MapReduce frameworks gets to be important. Faraz Ahmad et al. developed a benchmark suite: PUMA MapReduce Benchmark. During our work on MapReduce, we developed a benchmark suite […]
TeraSort is one of Hadoop’s widely used benchmarks. Hadoop’s distribution contains both the input generator and sorting implementations: the TeraGen generates the input and TeraSort conducts the sorting. Here, we provide a short tutorial for using the Hadoop TeraSort benchmark. TeraGen generates random data that can be used as input data for a subsequent running […]
After installing Hadoop, we usually run some benchmark programs to test whether the system works well. In the post of the Hadoop install tutorial, we show a very simple to grep strings from a simple sets of files. In this post, we introduce the Sort for testing and benchmarking Hadoop. The Sort program is also […]
