Generating Inputs

Workload description

Inputs consist of a puzzle list and a file which indicates how many puzzles to process. The puzzle list must always contain 27 puzzles, although not all must be used.

List of puzzles

To run the script, you must have a file called 'puzzles.txt' that contains all of the possible puzzles to be considered. See the other .txt files in the scripts for what the format is expected to be.

Randomly-generated sudoku puzzles take very little time for the benchmark to process. However, the public domain Sudoku program WayBack Machine generates puzzles that can be used.

Generating workload

To generate a specific workload, run:

./gen-input.py [options]

To get information on all of the options, run:

./gen-input.py --help
