The first test done with Jadim
was to compare its speed on one of the CICT's SGI Origin 2000, and one
of ENSEEIHT's Sun Ultra Spark 1 station. The details of the performances
of these two computers is available at the Standar
Performance Evaluation Corporation homepage. The exact
results published for this machine are available here : Sun
Ultra 1, SGI O2000.
These analysis conclude that the Origin 2000 using one processor goes around 3.16 times faster then the Sun.
Compiling Jadim on both platforms using the -fast
option as well as all the speed optimisation leads to a user time of 25.99s
for the SGI supercalculator, and 126s for the Sun workstation, that is
4.84 times faster. The difference between the spec report and our result
is probably due to the kind of calculation done.
