If you can wait a few weeks, we will be releasing our Beowulf Performance
Suite.  It will include a series of standard sequential and parallel
tests with a GUI front end and results reported into HTML. We allow
the nasa parallel benchmarks to be run using (lam,mpich, mpi-pro), 
(gnu,pgi, absoft), (N procs), and (W,A,B,C size).

This is not a benchmark (say this ten times).

It is intended to be a way to measure how well things work - like
is my cluster working or if I upgrade/change something does it change
the performance of the suite. 

This will not be a benchmark suite (say this ten times).

In the mean time, most of the MPI packages come with some 
test suites.
