Bandwidth is primarily a memory bandwidth benchmark, but it can also measure network bandwidth. It measures the maximum memory bandwidth of each part of the memory system, including main memory, L1, L2, and L3 caches, framebuffer memory, and register-to-register. For many tests, it performs both sequential memory accesses as well as random memory accesses to provide a more real-world performance estimate. The tests support Linux (Intel), Windows/Cygwin, and Mac OS X. Its core routines are in assembly for x86 and x86-64 architectures with both SSE4 and AVX support. Bandwidth also includes automatic graphing of the results, stored to a BMP image file. The network bandwidth tests support Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows/Cygwin.
SHTns is a high-performance Spherical Harmonic Transform library. It was designed for numerical simulation (fluid flows, mhd, etc.) in spherical geometries, but can be used for any kind of problem involving scalar or vector spherical harmonics. It is very fast, thanks to careful vectorization and runtime tuning. It supports multi-threaded transforms via OpenMP. It features scalar and vector transforms, synthesis and analysis, and flexible truncation and normalization. A Python interface is included.
