Answer: emrohit says

They are synthetic benchmarks for evaluating the performance of computers.
1. The Whetstone benchmark primarily measures the floating-point arithmetic performance.
2. Dhrystone measures the integer and string operations performance.

    (1) Whetstone is a synthetic benchmark for evaluating the floating point arithmetic performance of computer

    (2) Dhrystone is a linear programming synthetic benchmark (without floating point)

    Dhrystone and whetstone


  3. poo

    Synthetic benchmarks for evaluating the performance of computers – Whetstone and Dhrystone


  4. 1- Whetstone 2-Dhrystone

    Funnda would be that both are benchmarks for evaluating the performance of computers.

    the whetstone benchmark which measures floating point arithmetic of computers, and the dhrystone one which measures integer programming..

    1. Whetstone, Leicestershire.
    2. might be dhrystone.

    Computer benchmarks. Whetstone is the floating point one.
    Many others are puns on this name.

    Whetstone versus Dhrystone benchmarking?
    The latter being a pun on the former.

    Whetstone


  9. Whetstone!

    Whetstone measures FLOPS and Dhrystone measures integer and string operations


  11. Ps

    Benchmarks
    1. Is Whetstone, that uses floating point
    2. Guessing its supposed to be some non-floating point based benchmark, my money is dhrystone

    donno if this got posted the first time

  18. Whetstone, Dhrystone.
    Synthetic benchmarks for measuring performance on computers.

    Whetstone Dhrystone benchmarks.

    whetstone and dhrystone – The Dhrystone benchmark contains no floating point operations, thus the name is a pun on the then-popular Whetstone benchmark for floating point operations.


  21. Whetstone. Whetstone benchmark.
