Among the benchmark suites, the programs, for which we present the results later, are described below:

**IJPeg**This is a image compression program. It is taken from the SPEC 95 integer benchmarks. It performs a series of compressions at differing quality levels over a variety of images. The workload is taken from the behavior of someone seeking the best trade-off between space and time for a variety of images.**GO**This is a program simulating the playing of the game GO. It has been taken from the SPEC 95 integer benchmarks. It plays the game of GO against itself, using pattern matching algorithms to search the search space. It is known not to use the cache very much, but performs initialization of a large data chunk.**EPIC**This is a experimental image data compression program. It is taken from the Mediabench benchmark suite. It uses algorithms specialized for images, such as wavelet decomposition to perform image compression.**N-Queens**This benchmark solves the N-Queens problem. This famous problem calculates the number of ways of placing N queens on a N by N chess board in non-attacking positions. Here N has been taken to be 10.**Matrix multiplication**This multiplies two N by N matrices together. The matrices are of size 64 by 64, and have random entries.**Cellular Automaton**This program simulates a 1 dimensional cellular automaton. The automaton has 1000 cells and is simulated for 100 time steps.**Quicksort**This program sorts a random array of 50,000 elements.**Word frequency counter**This program counts the frequency of the words appearing in its input, which is the Book of Revelation according to St John from the online version of the King James Bible.**Linpack**This is a port of the Linpack benchmark, a solver of simultaneous linear equations.**Java Compiler**This program is the Sun Java compiler, as a part of JDK 1.0.2.**JavaCC Generated parser**This is a Java parser, generated by the JavaCC parser-generator.**Kawa**This is a Scheme interpreter, written in Java. The program executed calculates the first 100 digits of Pi, using the Spigot algorithm .
