Abstract:

This report is a laboratory users guide for evaluating performance of ADA compilers using the Association of Computing Machinerys ACM performance Issues Working Group PIWG benchmarking test suite. The report covers the August 1, 1990 version PIWG suite. Part 1 of the report presents a detailed step-by-step instruction for installing these tests on a SUN workstation using a UNIX operating system, and performing an evaluation of a SPARCAda compiler. Part 2 of the report covers installation and execution of costs on the Wright Laboratory WLAAAF VAX 4000 cluster. Results include recommendations for future work optimization for avionics functions by identification, selection, and execution of test subsets appropriate to specific functions, such as navigation, weapon delivery, and electronic warfare modification of UNIX script files so that execution is completely automatic computation of averages and variabilities of test results and adding graphics to show comparisons of various Ada compilers.
