there are public SpecInt2000 and SpecFP2000 data available for real Alphas.
Stromasys is in the process of running SPEC2000 performance benchmarks and will publish the data in the future.
Note that you have to buy the SPEC2000 benchmarks sources, if you want to run your own tests.
A very simple CPU performance test would consist of running the CALCULATE_VUPS.COM procedure (from Stromasys) or the VUPS.COM procedure provided for the FreeAXP emulator. Both return different 'VUPS' values, but provide a good approximation of the CPU speed.
malmberg December 12 2017 HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
DoeveR August 07 2017 Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?
