Benchmarks for distributed computer systems

What is the scope of the IPACS project ?

IPACS wants to define a new basis for benchmarks measuring system performance of distributed systems. The goal is to develop methods of measurement based on new applications, low level, and grid benchmarks, which also allow performance prediction. A further significant element of the new benchmark environment is represented in the usability of the benchmarks. Mechanisms for the automatic installation and execution of benchmarks are being strived for and grid benchmarks, which also allow performance prediction.
