Available tests

The EESSI test suite currently includes tests for:

For a complete overview of all available tests in the EESSI test suite, see the eessi/testsuite/tests subdirectory in the EESSI/test-suite GitHub repository.


Several tests for GROMACS, a software package to perform molecular dynamics simulations, are included, which use the systems included in the HECBioSim benchmark suite:

  • Crambin (20K atom system)
  • Glutamine-Binding-Protein (61K atom system)
  • hEGFRDimer (465K atom system)
  • hEGFRDimerSmallerPL (465K atom system, only 10k steps)
  • hEGFRDimerPair (1.4M atom system)
  • hEGFRtetramerPair (3M atom system)

It is implemented in tests/apps/, on top of the GROMACS test that is included in the ReFrame test library hpctestlib.

To run this GROMACS test with all HECBioSim systems, use:

reframe --run --name GROMACS

To run this GROMACS test only for a specific HECBioSim system, use for example:

reframe --run --name 'GROMACS.*HECBioSim/hEGFRDimerPair'

To run this GROMACS test with the smallest HECBioSim system (Crambin), you can use the CI tag:

reframe --run --name GROMACS --tag CI


A test for TensorFlow, a machine learning framework, is included, which is based on the "Multi-worker training with Keras" TensorFlow tutorial.

It is implemented in tests/apps/tensorflow/.

To run this TensorFlow test, use:

reframe --run --name TensorFlow


This test requires TensorFlow v2.11 or newer, using an older TensorFlow version will not work!

OSU Micro-Benchmarks

A test for OSU Micro-Benchmarks, which provides an MPI benchmark.

It is implemented in tests/apps/

To run this Osu Micro-Benchmark, use:

reframe --run --name OSU-Micro-Benchmarks


This test requires OSU Micro-Benchmarks v5.9 or newer, using an older OSU -Micro-Benchmark version will not work!
