Benchmark Plotting / Tabling

Below is an example configuration file used to input the desired options for the comprehensive benchmark comparison script Additional configuration file examples can be found in the benchmarks directory of GCpy.

The script allows one to perform benchmark comparisons between any simulation duration supplied in the configuration file provided the ref and dev simulations time periods match. Additionally, if the durations specified are exactly one year, then the corresponding bmk_type specialty comparison script will be run (either or Any other duration will run the standard suite of benchmark comparisons.


# ===================================================================== # Benchmark configuration file (EDIT AS NEEDED) # customize in the following manner: # (1) Edit the path variables so that they point to folders w/ model data # (2) Edit the version strings for each benchmark simulation # (3) Edit the switches that turn on/off creating of plots and tables # (4) If necessary, edit labels for the dev and ref versions # Note: When doing GCHP vs GCC comparisions gchp_dev will be compared # to gcc_dev (not gcc_ref!). This ensures consistency in version names # when doing GCHP vs GCC diff-of-diffs (mps, 6/27/19) # ===================================================================== # configuration for 1 month benchmark paths:
