Abstract:

This report documents the results obtained from running the ACM sigada Performance Issues Working Group PIWG and the University of Michigan Ada performance benchmarks on a Motorola MC68020 microprocessor MVME133 VMEmodule Monobard Microcomputer, using the Systems Designers Ada-Plus, the TeleSoft TeleGen2, and the VERDIX VAXVMS hosted cross-compilers. A brief description of the benchmarks and the test environment is followed by a discussion of some problems encountered and lessons learned. Wherever possible, the output of each benchmark program is also included. The benchmarking instrumentation subgroup was formed to 1 Collect and run available Ada benchmark programs from a variety of sources on variety of targets 2 Identify gaps in the coverage and fill them with new test programs 3 Review the measurement techniques used and provide new ones if necessary and 4 Verify software timings by inspection and with specialized test instruments.
