Is there software to test a dual processors system?

Is there software to test a dual processors system?
I would like to test and/or benchmark
my Windows XP pro dual processors system.
My system has dual Intel 850 MHz PIII processors.
NORITECH server with the following
INTEL L440GX+ SERVER MOTHERBOARD
DUAL Pentium III 850MHZ SLOT1 cpu
Integrated CIRRUS Logic 5480 Graphics Adapter
Integrated Adaptec 7896 ScSI Controller
4 SLOTS FOR MEMORY - 1024MB ECC SDRAM PC100
2 SCSI ADAPTER
5 PCI SLOTS
1 ISA SLOTS
Three(3) 18GB SCSI IBM ULTRASTAR HARD DRIVE(s)
Thank You

What kind of tests are you hoping to do on your dual processor system? There are plenty of parallel benchmarking programs and suites that could test the processing power of your system with threads or multiple processes. There are also benchmarks that are targeted to specific subsystems (memory, IO, etc.).
These should all be pretty easy to find on the web. There are several sites that have benchmarking archives, so you shouldn't have any trouble finding something that will exercise the parts of your system you want to have tested.

I would like to compare(Benchmark) my computers.
I have the following sysyems;
DUAL Pentium III 850MHZ
DUAL Pentium III 850MHZ (Turn off one CPU)
2.4GH Pentium 4 - HP system
933MHz Pentium III - DELL system
All running Windows XP pro.
I cannot find good benchmarking software.
What benchmarking software do you suggest
and where can I find the software?
I am an old retired FORTRAN programmer.
This looks like a fun project!!!
Thank You

The NAS Parallel Benchmarks might be a good start. There are both MPI (distributed memory) and OpenMP (shared memory)versions of the eight applications. Look at http://www.nas.nasa.gov/Software/NPB/for more details. You will need either an MPI library distribution or a compiler that recognizes OpenMP.
Doing a Google search of "parallel benchmark" yielded the following collection site: http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/cnc/projects/ecovism/benchmarks.html. There are many others that can be found. It all depends on what you're trying to compare; computation power, memory bandwidth, I/O, parallel processing, communication badwidth, etc.
