For the evaluation of shared memory systems several programs were chosen and ported to different, today available computer systems. These applications represent important aspects of our numerical and algorithmic research. Beside the evaluation of the processor performance, the programs were chosen to test the scalability of the systems w.r.t. memory and the number of CPUs. The main characteristics of the benchmarked computer systems and the results from the individual benchmarks are presented. Furthermore, problems which occurred while porting the programs are discussed.
