Gromacs has an official 3rd party listings, sresscpu2 is listed there and I think they will update that link whenever needed ( just for reference ).

http://www.gromacs.org/index.php?title= ... r_software <- UF the site looks much better now :D

Edit: direct download link from gromacs http://www.gromacs.org/@api/deki/files/ ... sscpu2.tgz ( I read someone saying they didn't know tgz, I would say download any compresion software and you will ( winzip/winrar ect ).

Worked for me every time, could it be an error on your side?

The download server doesn't report file size correctly, it reads as unkown with IE but downloads just fine :?:

I tested at two location, different machines, different ISP ... it doesn't work.

On this machine I got : "! C:\Documents and Settings\toTOW\Local Settings\Temp\stresscpu2.tgz: Corrupted archive" :S

Well atleast the oldwww link works, but I think that won't last foreever and the current 3rd party listing will likely stay up to date longer.

I send you the md5sum just to check, it's pretty strange that it seems to work fine here but not at your location(s) :e?:

For me that happened to be gzipped tar.gz file. I blame MIME desync. (Honestly, I don't bother to look for actual client-server talks.)

The link in the first post of this thread, is now back up. :)

I have d/l'ed the program from the link in the utilities section of the download page. I right clicked on the boxed file icon, and selected "extract", Unfortunately the file archive manager exits quickly with the error:

"This doesn't look like a tar archive"

The file I have is named "stresscpu2.tgz", and I'm running Ubuntu 9.04 with all updates.

I thought the file might have got mangled in d/l, so I d/l'ed it a second time, after deleting the first one. Same error result when I try to extract it.

The link in the first post is now working again, and I've d/l'ed another copy of this stresscpu2.tgz file. Still getting the same error when I try to extract it, however. :(

How do you extract it?

Windows XP's built in zip support will open the .tgz file, then copy the files to a new folder.

I tried to download it and got the corrupted archive message in WinRAR :(

I guess it would be better to use my mirror on FAH-Addict : http://en.fah-addict.net/web/web-4-7.php :mrgreen:

Worked for me. I also used WinRAR to extract the files.

I had issues when trying to open the archive by double click or right click in the windows interface, but if you use a program like 7zip and nav to it in the archive program to extract it works fine. Odd issue but that's how I got around it.

So the description says it's supposed to do 64bit also... is that just for Linux and OSX? I have win7x64 and it keeps coming up as 32bit. I mean the win binary itself is called stresscpuV2_win32 but there's no _win64 version in the archive!

Is there a different version or a command line switch to get it to do 64bit?

Thanks for your help!

As I posted earlier in this thread...

You didn't say which OS you had, so not easy to recommend any solution. Additionally, that software isn't provided by this project, so feedback here goes mostly unheard. Send an email to the developer.

As for 64 bit Win, see the aptly named README file...

1. In most cases you can just use one of the precompiled binaries.

2. To compile, copy one of the makefiles to 'Makefile', and
issue 'make' to create the stresscpu2 binary.

3. If you can't get threads to work at all, you can disable them with -DNO_THREADS.
It works just fine to run multiple copies of the program in parallel instead.

4. There is no 64 bit windows binary since I'm not going to go through the effort to
buy & install a 64 bit windows system just to test this program and then throw it
out again. Complain to Microsoft :-)

I've created a 64-bit kernel assembly file for masm, but there are likely a couple of
typos remaining in it. If you have access to a ml64.exe (64-bit masm) you could do me
a favor by trying to compile kernel_x86_64_masm_syntax.s and send me the error listing.

Have fun,

wow compile it yourselves they say... complain to microsoft they say... sounds like alot of work for your user base. idk what a masm is (googled now but i'm not learning how to use it for Mr. Lindahl's sake) so I'll leave the readme at that.

this fella should have access to a site-license. If not, Windows 7 is available for trial for large enterprises/schools perhaps he could ask his site admin for a copy. Windows 7 installs in trial mode and gives you 30-120 days to activate. Tons of time to debug for free. Details:
