You can download NAS Parallel Benchmarks(NPB) at this link.
First, untar the downloaded tar file.
$tar -xvf ./NPB3.3.1.tar.gz
Since NPB uses Fortran, you have to install gfortran.
$sudo apt-get install gfortran
NPB supports MPI, OMP, and SER. After describing how to build NPB-OMP, I’ll explain how to build NPB-MPI.
1. NPB-OMP build
Copy make.def.template and suite.def.template to make.def and suite.def.
* make.def contains definitions for building NPB.
* suite.def has options for benchmarks.
#under NPB3.3-OMP/config directory cp make.def.template make.def cp suite.def.template suite.def
You have to modify make.def a little bit (Thanks to Changhyun Park).
#before modification #F77 = f77 #after modification F77 = gfortran #before modification #FFLAGS = -O #after modification FFLAGS = -O -ff2c -mcmodel=medium #before modification #FLINKFLAGS = -O #after modification FLINKFLAGS = -fopenmp -O -ff2c
Now you can build NPB-OMP using the following command.
#under NPB3.3-OMP directory $make suite
You can see binaries under ./NPB3.3-OMP/bin.
$ls ./bin bt.S.x dc.S.x is.S.x lu.S.x sp.S.x ua.S.x
Tip. I don’t know why but the OMP version of NPB3.3 are not parallelized properly at least in my experiment environment. I found SNU-NPB and it works well.
2. NPB-MPI build
To build NPB-MPI, you have to install related libraries.
apt-get install openmpi-bin libopenmpi-dev
As you have done to build NPB-OMP, you should create proper configuration files.
cp make.def.template make.def cp suite.def.template suite.def
After that, you have to configure both files properly (Thank you, Thiago Kenji Okada).
#under NPB3.3-MPI/config directory sed -i -e 's/f77/mpif77/g' -e 's/cc/mpicc/g' -e 's/-O/-O3 -mcmodel=medium/g' make.def
Additionally, you have to set your build options properly at suite.def. The number of processes should be power of 2 except bt and sp. bt and sp allow power of a natural number as the number of processes. Following is one example of suite.def.
You can run your code with the following command
