Benchmark Definitions (Computing)

  • In computing, a benchmark is the result of running a computer program, a set of programs, or other operations, in order to assess the relative performance of an object, by running a number of standard tests and trials against it. - From Wikipedia
  • A Benchmark is a standardized program (or detailed specifications of program) designed or selected to be run on different computer systems, with the goal of a fair comparison of the performance of those systems. - From R. Weicker
  • Grid Benchmark Definitions

  • The use of benchmark programs for the fair, concise, and affordable performance characterization of different aspects of a Grid infrastructure. - From M. Dikaiakos
  • A result of running a set of standardized programs to fairly assess the performance and dependability of different aspects of Grid infrastructures, services and applications. - From me
