    Benchmark Farsite

    We're looking at purchasing new hardware, and are in need of having benchmarks run on our custom software.

    FARSITE (Fire Area Simulator) is a program for computing fire spread given a landscape, a fire perimeter, initial fuel moisture conditions, and a weather stream. Farsite computes arrival time of the fire as it spreads, as well as other various fire intensity and spread rate outputs.

    We have a new DLL called Farsite.dll, and I've put together a couple of quick benchmark runs to gather run times on. At this point the FarsiteDLL is single threaded but we will also be running multiple simultaneous instances of Farsite.

    The benchmark are very simple to run. Simple download the appropriate package, extract to a directory, and run the two batch files.

    RunBenchMark.bat - Launches single threaded TestFarsite.exe.
    RunMultiBench.bat - Launches MultiFarsite.exe which creates a Farsite run on each processor and runs them to completion.

    The output from each is an arrival time grid and a timings text file which contains run time information. Please zip up all of the .txt files produced by the runs and email them to me or simply post your results here. The readme.txt file contains the email address I would like results submitted to: stubrittainATgmail.com

    Here's the links to the benchmark packages:
    32 bit Windows Version: http://sbrittain.net/Farsite/BenchFarsitex86.zip
    64 bit Windows Version: http://sbrittain.net/Farsite/BenchFarsitex64.zip

    I would also like to know 1) If the test machine is overclocked and if so to what processor speed and 2) If hyperthreading was enabled/disabled when running the 'Multi' benchmark.

    Thanks in advance to all who run this!

    Here's a couple of sample outputs:

    I am primarily interested in the results from RunBenchMark.bat (either x64 or x86). If you have a machine with hypethreading enabled I would be very interested in the RunMultiBench.bat results files as I'm trying to evealuate the cost/benefits of using hyperthreded machines.

    For instance, here's the results of the i7 - 790 system above when running the Multi bench:

    So when running on all logical cores my individual instance time went from 91 secs to 146 seconds. Tests have shown run times to be about the same on non-hyperthreaded machines.

    Thanks in advance for running this!

    Re: Benchmark Farsite

    Thanks Spankin, I'll add those T5200 times to my list. I have a T7200 but haven't booted my laptop in months. Now I guess I have to do it.

    And thanks to Wahoo_man as well for emailing me his X2 4200+ times (190.015 sec)

    Sure would like to see some Core i5 numbers.

    I ain't got no zip on this laptop... but I DO know how to spoiler.

    Multi on I5 laptop:

    Now, I'm not sure I did this right... let me know.

    Re: Benchmark Farsite

    Sorry... forgot the parents had an I5 laptop... just sent 'em in.

    If you want, I'll run the Q6600 and the I7 laptop this afternoon... but I gotta get ready for work now.

    Will post x86 xpsp3 on same rig if you want.

    Edit, Not overclocked atm but can run at 2.4ghz (eqivalent to e6600) if interested.

    Re: Benchmark Farsite

    Sparx, thanks I'll add those times.

    I've found the x64 versions are slightly faster, but if you want to boot and run x86 I'd sure tally the results, plus it'd be interesting to check consistency with what I've run on my limited hardware.

    Not really interested in the overclocked times except to have it noted when run, all our hardware will be running at stock speeds. The main reason I ask is that I get processor speed in that report from the registry so pretty sure it doesn't reflect overclocked speed (though I may be wrong on this).

    Re: Benchmark Farsite

    Thanks mmettin, got the Q6600 and P7450 results.

    Looks like timings file picked up your overclock, good to know.

    If these are in a usable format I can run 4 cores with both 4 and 8 threads with HT on and off on another i7 rig clocked at 4000Mhz...

    Argh!, just realised... paused the smp client but still had 3 x Gpu clients running, can re run later if you like ?

    Re: Benchmark Farsite

    Thanks AMD Fanatic and Jester. Nice overclocks, both of you!

    Actually all I really need are the System Info section and the total run time. But I can pull those out easily enough, and having the model parameters in the ensures the run data is the same.

    Jester I'm not sure of the effect of running GPU clients while this is running. So I'll leave it up to you whether or not you want to rerun it. Usually when running the multi-bench times may speed up (without hyperthreading) as all of the data is in the cache. Yours bumped up slightly so I'm guessing we ran into a little overhead with the GPU clients. The effect looked negligible for the single bench.

    AMD Fanatic you mentioned yesterday that you expected times to decrease with overclock, but edited it out. It did make me go look at the code as far as exactly where I was taking timing information. And I did find that the ignition file is read from disk during my run time calculation, so I'm rethinking a few things regarding exactly where I take those time stamps. I can and will modify my time stamps so that I totally seperate out the disk access, and report data load times as well as pure processing times. But that will have to wait a little bit until I get a little more free time for it. Just FYI ignition load times I've run so far are less than 0.1 sec for this particular dataset.
