SPLASH-2 for Solaris on SPARC on Simics

SPLASH-2 is getting a bit outdated, if you're looking for an up-to-date benchmark suite for multicore/multiprocessing research, consider using SPLASH-3 or PARSEC which are much more recent and thus more relevant for research towards future multiprocessors architectures.

On this page, you can download the source code for the SPLASH-2 parallel benchmark suite, with the following modifications:
Downloads: If you have troubles compiling the sources, the last link points to an ISO image which contains the binaries and input sets for most of the benchmarks.

Note that the threading model used in this distribution is Solaris-specific, so this will not run on Linux. See the links below for how to run SPLASH-2 on Linux.
Also this distribution was only tested on UltraSPARC and Solaris 8/9. It might work on Solaris for x86-64, but I haven't had any reports on success or failure there, please let me know if you tried!

Both the web pages for the original SPLASH-2 distribution, and the people at UPC who distribute the required PARMACS implementation, seem to have gone offline... I am hosting their original distributions here:
