Abstract:

This paper documents some initial investigations into the benchmarking of Ada compilers. A summary of available benchmarking suites is given, although only two of these suites were used in the initial benchmarking experiments the ACM SIGAda Performance Issues Working Group benchmarks and the University of Michigan benchmarks. Experiences and lessons learned in applying these suites to the Alsys Ada compiler hosted on a Toshiba personal computer and to the DEC VAX Ada compiler hosted on a VAX 8300 are provided. Based on these initial benchmarking experiences, several areas of possible further research development are identified. In particular, the need for more advanced analysis tools is discussed. cp
