Abstract : In March 1986, NAVOCEANSYSCEN tasked ISA to prepare a comprehensive test suite to systematically test and evaluate a variety of computer systems and compare the results. NAVOCEANSYSCEN supplied ISA with their Pre-Award test suite, with instructions to also include certain published tests, such as the Dhrystone and Whetstone benchmarks. It was ISA's task to consolidate all the designated tests into one easily-runnable program which can be used by either Government or Contractor personnel to test all computer systems that are candidates for procurement. NAVOCEANSYSCEN selected the VAX 11/780 under UNIX 4.3 BSD as the baseline system to which each target system (procurement candidates) would be compared. Our program, bench, collects and stores test results from the baseline system, collects and stores results from all the target systems, and producess two reports. The first report compares any two systems which the user selects, and the second report summarizes all the test data in one report. The user tells the program which of these tasks he wishes performed through the use of options on the input line. All input is in standard UNIX format.
