Benchmarking programs

Hi,
We are working on a comparison of some of the GVN algorithms in terms of the number of redundant (total) expressions that can be detected. We are now looking for benchmark programs that can be used for this purpose. We would like to know if there are any open source benchmark programs available and whether the SPEC benchmark suite will be useful for this purpose.
thanks

While not a benchmark, GambitC is certainly a stress test for GVN
implementations. http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/~gambit/

SPEC is good. There are also other benchmark suites (several in LLVM's test suite) [Look in the MultiSource/Benchmarks directory]. These are also good: IMPACT: Parboil Benchmarks
