These tests are carried out using only one processor core in the computer. Simulation time is taken from the EnergyPlus report (eplusout.end) for each job. This time excludes CPU cycles waiting on file I/O etc. However, it is influenced by other activities on the computer during the period of bench-marking.
You are much welcome to send us your speed test results, or models to be included in the test suite.
