[parsec-users] PARSEC Test Time

Hi Joydeep,

The execution time blackscholes depends on the number of input items and the correlation of time and input size is linear.
For example, the input number of simlarge is 64K which takes ~2 seconds to complete; The input number of native is 10M which takes ~300 seconds. 

In order to run the test for 100 seconds, you can generate a ~3M input by picking them from the native input.

Best Regards,

Subject: [parsec-users] PARSEC Test Time


I was wondering if there is any way I can time my tests in PARSEC. For example, when I am running the blackscholes package with simlarge input, the test finishes in 2 seconds. Is there any way I can change the input parameters in such a way so as to run the test for 100 seconds?
