Re: Performance testing of C/R

I'm about to submit a request for summer students to the "Center for
Science and Engineering".  They have funds to pay for a limited number
of students (maybe 3-5 for all of CS).  They want us to try to come up
with 1/2 the funds to extend their reach.  Students cost $4750 for a 10
week stint.

I'm going to send in the current 3 positions we have in FTG: UPC, Vector
study, and C/R batch systems.

What's the call on whether we should try for someone to do some timings
on C/R on the filesystem GUPFS equipment?  Should I try to move forward
with this?
