The SPEC SMT 97 benchmark was an effort to update the SPEC SDM benchmark which never reached a release state.

The goal was to have a measure of a System's Multitasking Tasking capabilities.

Some insight into the efforts to develop this update can be found in Perspectives on the SPEC SDET Benchmark - A paper by Steven L. Gaede, Lone Eagle Systems, Inc.


SPEC is soliciting help for this benchmark. We think we have a good idea of what reasonable multitasking workloads look like, but we could always use some direct information from real-world sites. If you have any workload data that you are willing to share with SPEC, let us know.
