The Intel® Distribution for LINPACK* Benchmark is based on modifications and additions to High-Performance LINPACK (HPL) (http://www.netlib.org/benchmark/hpl
/) from Innovative Computing Laboratories (ICL) at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. The Intel® Distribution for LINPACK Benchmark can be used for TOP500 runs (see
) and for benchmarking your cluster. To use the benchmark you need to be familiar with HPL usage. The Intel® Distribution for LINPACK Benchmark provides some enhancements designed to make the HPL usage more convenient and to use Intel® Message-Passing Interface (MPI) settings to improve performance.
