    The Overclocking & Cooling forum has its own benchmarks, but those are geared towards single CPU systems. A few months ago when I built my first new SMP system (Had a Dell PowerEdge Dual P3 Server before it) I found the clibench SMP benchmark.

    So, let's put together our System Specs & run this benchmark a few times so we can at least see how our different systems handle different multi-threaded benchmarks.


    On 06/20/2005, these were the Top 20 scores sorted by Dhrystones:

    ------------------------------------------------------
    Edit: I have setup a database on my website where I am listing & sorting the results from this thread. You can access it via the web here: CliBench Results Database - http://files.timaxe.com/projects/clibench/

    Edit 2/7: Results are now avaliable in a CSV (Comma Seperated Values) file that can be imported into most spreadsheet software and graphed. The download can be found on my page, or you can direct download all of the results with this link: Download All Results -- http://files.timaxe.com/projects/clibench/export.php?type=all
    (I may eventually edit a few graphs into this first post)
    ------------------------------------------------------


    Here is what I would like you to do:
    • Go to the clibench home page, and download the CliBench Mk III SMP 0.7.16 binary only file.
    • Run CliBench ( clibench-mkiii-0.7.16.exe ). It should have a large empty window.
    • Go to Test -> Select All CPU Tests
    • Go to Test -> Run Selected Tests
    • On the Window that pops up, Fill in # of Threads To Run and click Ok (begin)
      Threads To Run = Number of (Virtual) Processors Recognized By OS
    • At the end of the benchmark session, your computer should be responsive again.
    • Download my results, and do a File -> Compare to load them into CliBench.
      (Zxcs has kindly mirrored the comparison file here for me incase my server goes off-line)
    • Do a File -> Export and save a text file.
    • Copy & Paste The Results into a reply, along with information such as your Processor Architecture & Speed, RAM (& ratio if not 1:1), FSB/Multiplier settings, Motherboard, and whatever else you deem important


    You may also repeat the test with a single CPU, and do a File -> Compare. But to make it easier to read/scroll through the results, please post each benchmark compared to my results. (I guess mine should be the "base" system :D)


    Base System Specs in Comparison File (See next post):

    • Dual AthlonXP-M 2400+ @ 2.448GHz (18x136) (1.75v) on Gigabyte GA-7DPXDW-P
    • PC3200 512MB Generic Kingston RAM @ 136MHz (Don't remember timings)
    • Windows 2000 SP4

    Edit: If you can, please use the [ code] [/ code] tags for the results so formatting/spaces can be preserved.

    Well, I ended up comparing these scores backwards when I took the screen shot a few months ago :p

    Man, that single Opteron murders my dual memory busses and the matrix operations :eek:
    (760MPX gives each processor a dedicated bus)

    Even though that is single threaded with one processor vs. your duals, I would have figured the opteron to fair better than that. I didn't do any bench preparing, not even closing any running apps or rebooting, but that still isn't what I expected.

    I shouldnt really post because mine is under 2 Vapochills but there ya have it, rig is in sig, ram is in dual channel, running at 2703mhz at time of this test, I did have 2 FAH consoles open too but they shouldn't have affected it any :D

    Haha, I just realized that I downloaded this same program years ago to benchmark my system after I upgraded my processor. I had an Asus super socket 7 motherboard, and went from a Cyrix MII 233MHz to an AMD K6-2 500MHz. The K6-2 murdered the MII in everything... except floating point, where the MII was like 50% better, even though it was more than twice as slow. Weird. :p

    The other thing that worries me is I don't think CliBench is reporting correct Mflops, Under sandra I hit 5k-6k Mflops not, 2k-2.5k

    From what CliBench says, its Whetstone test fits entirely into the L1 cache of the processor. But it does mention that some of the tests were rewritten...which might explain why SiSandra & CliBench come up with different results. I'm not sure how CliBench was compiled, but I'll look into taking the sources and trying to get them to compile under BloodShed DevC++ to see if there are differences from the compiler used (I'm not sure if I can convert some MSVC++ specific code though or even make sense of most of it though -- I might look at his GliBench, which is the Linux port of it).

    Overall though your observation is true, it does look like Whetstone is reported way lower on CliBench than SiSandra, and I'm not sure why. This version of the program was released ~3.5 years ago, so perhaps there are fewer optimizations for newer instruction sets/processors? (SSE 2/3?)

    Also I think Dhrystones are not directly compareable because it isn't measured/calculated in VAX MIPS. I have no idea how/if the kDhrystones reported here can be converted into a compareable MIPS value to be "checked" against SiSandra. (For what it is worth, according to a comment on the site regarding this, the VAX 11/780 is considered 1 MIP, and can do ~1757 Dhrystones per second)




    From the above description though, I think we'll find that most of Intel's processors will lag behind in the Eight Queens Problem (which places 8 queens on a chess board so they don't check each other) -- something we're beginning to see from GotNoRice's Xeon setup. Figuring out what these results mean and why they differ is a good lesson in different processor architectures. The person put together a graph of what is today much older processor families to see how they scale -- check it out here http://clibench.daemonware.ch/index.php?read=8 and do a View-Image (new Window) on the graph to see it full size.



    At least we can compare results within the program. I think that after we get a variety of systems here we'll be able to compare it better. I'm currently building a database with all of this information so it could possibly be graphed later on, and when that happens I'll choose a different "base score" so that the results fall over the 100%+ mark nicer. Because comparing 90% to 140% is *very* confusing.

    If you want to see what I have so far in this database, here it is -- http://files.timaxe.com/projects/clibench/

    Hmm I can't copy mine :confused:

    [​IMG]

    System's in the sig, HT enabled....this is 2 threads. 4 is marginally faster at a couple, slower at a couple but close all around.

    Just a correction on my information, I have 2 Opterons and ran CliBench with 2 threads. Also, I have 1 GB of memory (2x 512 modules of PC3200 @ 3:3:3:8 timings).

    To copy, you need to do a File -> Export to make a text file that you can open in NotePad for a Copy/Paste.



    Also, feel free to post multiple scores if you changed something. When I'm adding these to the database I keep track of how many processors and # of threads used, and there isn't a problem with multiple submissions from a person. (The "primary key" to the array/database is just the submission number when I add it)



    With the Intel setups, I'd love to record the differences with stuff like HyperThreading On/Off (if there are any) and the # of threads used. If you have time to kill, I'd be interested in extra numbers :)

    I also have some interesting observations that explain how this benchmark is multi threaded and how it scales with different # of threads. In summary, run threads as a multiple of avaliable processors. The rest just explains why, and is very boring. ;)



    If I try 3 threads though (with Options->RealTime Class enabled -- by default), the score is ~75% what it usually is with 2 processors. 5 threads is about ~83%. It follows the function:

    f(x) = (1 - 1/(x+1))

    And sure enough with 7 threads my scores are about ~87%. Also, with a single thread, my score is of course 50%. It all follows that function...which happens to be useful for figuring out how the internals of this benchmark work...


    That function leads me to believe that the benchmark fires off seperate/independant threads for each benchmark, and then averages them all together compared to the time it took to execute.

    This design allows it to scale well since in a given time frame; the processors will usually be used to their full potential; not being limited by having to exchange data between different threads -- they're independant. But it makes an assumption - given a period of time, everything is being processed to full capacity.

    That is true when the number of threads is a multiple of the number of avaliable processors. That assumption isn't true when it isn't a multiple, such as having 3 threads on a 2-CPU machine. This results in having the last thread using only half of the full capacity during the time that executes. Since we're looking for full capacity processing power, a calculation using half-capacity is a no-no, and is misleading. In short, keep it a multiple.



    This benchmark tells you how much work your processors can get done when they do their own thing as fast as they can when threads is a multiple of processors keeping them busy the entire time. (The processors don't have to talk to each other when this is multi-threaded -- only report their times/results back to the parent process) So be sure to use a multiple of the processors to get accurate results, and wake up because this post is finally over :)

    Can't benchmark my dually right now. Too busy folding for DR_K13's friend!

    But should be about the same as AMBIT's. Same chips / mobo, but 2GB PC2100 ECC REG.

    I must say I was pretty impressed with how well mine fared, especially compared to rice's far faster Xeon rig. Anyway...I'll run through whatever you want, when I'm not a week and a half prior to graduation at a design/media school where my box is rendering 24/7 for my grad reel :D

    It should be noted that I paused my renders but i still had 4 folding threads going at the time of that benchmark.

    I'm posting this as a heads up for everyone: the HDD write test is not accurate. What happens is that the benchmark is tricked by the Write Buffer on the HDD, and also Window's own file/write-back buffer. Which is why Jebus's Write Max exceeds SATA 150 spec. So just don't rely on the HDD/Storage tests with CliBench ;)



    Also, I have figured out code to sort by Dhyrstone scores, so you can go to my CliBench results database (http://files.timaxe.com/projects/clibench/) and see who is on top of that test (Zxcs). I'll expand that code to handle the other scores when I'm not studying for finals, so stay tuned.

    Also, I've filled in all of the information I was able to deduce from the descriptions of the setups given. If they're incorrect and you want them corrected, PM me or post corrections and I'll get to them when I'm not studying for finals.


    Cheers. And for everyone going into Finals (such as myself), good luck. :)

    Thanks mikeblas -- once I counted how many systems you added I decided to write a script to help me add to the database easier. :p

    Would you mind my using the "Supermicro P6DGU with two Penitum III 1GHz parts" as the weighted score on my website's database? I was waiting for some P3 scores, and Dual 1GHz is a nice speed. I just have to write the code to weigh the scores. :)



    That 8-way P3-700 Xeon system is one mean machine! :eek: I can't really imagine how much bite it has in regular usage, but it sure made a mark in the benchmarks! I don't think anything will knock it loose from the 8 queens test (short pipelines, lots of horsepower), and it doesn't look like it will give up that Whetstone benchmark either.

    I'm seeing that CliBench's Whetstone doesn't scale as well with extra MHz as SiSandra does -- more processors, even if they're slower, seem to produce better performance than a single *much* faster one on CliBench. I'm not sure why, and haven't had time to look at any code yet or ask any questions.



    BTW, results (sorted) can be found here: http://files.timaxe.com/projects/clibench/
