At the time of writing it is expected that the second release of the PARKBENCH suite will be available. This will include a small number of compact applications (see below). Other compact applications are under consideration for inclusion in the suite. Ultimately it is intended that the codes in the compact applications suite should be representative of the fields in which parallel computers are actually used. The codes should exercise a number of different algorithms, and possess different communication and I/O characteristics. We expect the compact applications suite to grow in the future to include no more than a dozen codes. This restriction is imposed so that the resources needed to manage and distribute the suite can be assessed. The suite may be enlarged further in the future if this seems manageable.

Currently, the following applications form the PARKBENCH compact applications suite:
