Manfred Alef (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)), Michele Michelotto
Many years ago the HEPiX Benchmarking Working Group had created the HS06 which had become the default benchmark for installed capacities, acounting, procurements aso. in WLCG. Now it's time to relaunch the group, starting with these tasks: - Development and proposal of a fast benchmark to estimate the performance of the provided job slot (in traditional batch farms) or VM instance (in cloud environments) - Preliminary work for a successor of the HS06 benchmark
