High-performance computing (HPC) systems are very big and powerful systems, with the main goal of achieving maximum performance of parallel jobs. Many dynamic factors influence the performance which makes this goal a non-trivial task. According to our knowledge, there is no standard tool to automatize performance evaluation through comparing different configurations and helping system administrators to select the best scheduling policy or the best job scheduler. This paper presents the Dynamic Job Scheduler Benchmark (DJSB). It is a configurable tool that compares performance metrics for different scenarios. DJSB receives a workload description and some general arguments such as job submission commands and generates performance metrics and performance plots. To test and present DJSB, we have compared three different scenarios with dynamic resource management strategies using DJSB experiment-driven tool. Results show that just changing some DJSB arguments we can set up and execute quite different experiments, making easy the comparison. In this particular case, a cooperative-dynamic resource management is evaluated compared with other resource management approaches.
