Revision as of 19:13, 19 October 2012

Usage:

  • Package Structure
       rodinia_2.0/bin : binary executables
       rodinia_2.0/common : common configuration file
       rodinia_2.0/cuda : source code for the CUDA implementations
       rodinia_2.0/data : input files
       rodinia_2.0/openmp : source code for the OpenMP implementations
       rodinia_2.0/opencl : source code for the OpenCL implementations
  • Build Rodinia
       1. Install CUDA/OCK drivers, SDK and toolkit on your machine
       2. Modify the rodinia_2.0/common/make.config file 
       3. 'Make' the programs (We also provide Makefiles for each benchmark)
  • Run Rodinia
       There is a 'run' file specifying the sample command to run each program.
