The importance of benchmarking is increasing as every aspect of human life is relying on the correct operation of computing systems. Although considerable efforts have been made, presently there are no widely accepted dependability benchmarks. This panel will discuss the main issues and the latest developments, as seen by industry and academia. Both hardware, software and system level dependability benchmarking will be addressed.
