No, it's not sufficient in general. Many benchmarks print very little or
nothing at all on the screen. You should check the output files in most
Also be aware that some programs use floating point computations, so there
are natural variations on different computer architectures due to limited
floating point accuracy. We looked into providing reference outputs for
PARSEC, but the floating point issue made it challenging.

We need to verify that the execution on our functional simulator is
correct; would it suffice to match the output printed to the screen to
that for native execution for all benchmarks?
