Abstract: Modeling and presenting performance data---even for simple kernels such as stencils---is not trivial. We therefore present an overview on how to interpret and what to learn from an INSPECT report, as well as highlighting best practices for performance data reporting.

INSPECT is the "Intranode Stencil Performance Evaluation Collection'', which compiles performance benchmarks and reports of various stencil and streaming kernels on a variety of architectures. The goal is to aid performance-aware developers with reference material and a methodology to analyze their own codes.

INSPECT set out to cover these topics and compile a summary of all necessary information to allow reproduction of the performance results, their interpretation and discussion.
