Summit, the latest flagship supercomputer deployed at Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF), became the number one system in the Top500 list in June 2018 and remains in the top spot in the most recent edition of the list. An extensive acceptance test plan was developed to evaluate the unique features introduced in the Summit architecture and system software stack. The acceptance test also includes tests to ensure that the system is reliable, stable, and performant.
