Another site had a paper. Have anyone come across Linpack paper?

The site is http://www.csis.hku.hk/~clwang/gideon300/peak.html.

I had the same problem interpret the results when I ran test supplied my 
mpich, eg mpptest and gotest.

Will it be worth setting up a performance chart for small clusters. It can 
include, FLOPS, Network performance etc.
