MINC/Benchmarks

A bunch of non scientific tests aiming to do a bit of benchmarking

Predominately this is a bit of a "mine is faster than yours" type of page, but hopefully it might be useful to someone who is trying to ascertain just what system to buy to do MINC stuff. If this is you, as a rule of thumb MINC type processing is more than often I/O bound with multiple file I/O's going on all the time. This means you should buy a motherboard with a fast FSB (Front side bus) instead of just a fast processor and fair chunk of RAM to avoid having to use swap/virtual memory.

The command we use to compute a rough indication of execution time is this:

time /usr/local/bic/bin/minctracc -clobber -debug -nonlinear -step 2 2 2 \
   /usr/local/bic/share/mni_autoreg/icbm_avg_152_t1_tal_lin.mnc \
   /usr/local/bic/share/mni_autoreg/icbm_avg_152_t1_tal_lin.mnc \
   /tmp/out.xfm

Notes[edit]

  • yes I know it is not the best test, but it seems good enough for now
  • yes I know it should make an identity transform and this is something you/we should check
