The author describes benchmarking and discusses some of the specific benchmark tests for computer systems that are in use today. He examines some of the pitfalls involved with benchmark comparison and analysis and points out how to avoid, or at least minimize the impact of, such problems. The goal is to learn how to gather and interpret meaningful comparison data. Benchmark test results are tabulated for the Dhrystone 1.1, Digital Review, Dodec, Khornerstone, Linpack, Livermore Fortran Kernel, SPICE, Stanford, and single-precision Whetstone benchmarks.<>
