Apologies for an error. It was pointed out to me that the 2nd 
and 3rd links are incorrect. They should read as
respectively. You may have found them from the main page away.

> Dear All,
> we have launched recently an on-line benchmarking database
> http://www.cse.clrc.ac.uk/disco/dbd/
> The emphasis is on clusters but not exclusively so.
> At the moment it has two simple interfaces: one for applications
> http://www.cse.clrc.ac.uk/disco/dbd/search-parallel.php
> and another for communication benchmarks IMB/PMB
> http://www.cse.clrc.ac.uk/disco/dbd/search-pmb.php
> Internally the database treats everything equally.
> The most basic unit is an independent "processing element" (PE) 
> which can be a single-core CPU, a core in a multi-core CPU, GPU, cell 
> or whatever. PEs can be oversubscribed ie run more than one thread
> (e.g. when HT or SMT is enabled). PEs aggregate into nodes
> between which communication takes place via some sort of interconnect.
> Application performance is compared against the same number of PEs.
> Hopefully we will improve the interface eventually and grow the 
> number of applications and benchmarks. 
> All your feedback is highly appreciated.
> If you would like to share your benchmarking data please contact
> me off the list. We are happy to accommodate results from trusted 
> sources.
> Regards,
> Igor
