A Framework for Accurate Measurements with Low Resolution Clocks

J.R. Herrero and J.J. Navarro (Spain)


Benchmarking templates, low resolution clocks.


The development of new efficient algorithms or implemen tations requires the validation of such codes as well as their timing. We need to measure accurately the execution time of a program so we can compare one algorithm with an other. In this paper we present a framework we have de vised which allows for accurate timings even with low res olution clocks. We have used this framework for the devel opment of efficient numerical codes.
