Numerical HPC modeling is an important technique to understand and predict various aspects of nuclear fusion experiments. The corresponding code development in this field inevitably involves time-consuming benchmarking and optimization of code performance. The present paper introduces the Automatic Testing and Performance Measurement System (ATPMS)-based on JuBE (Jülich Benchmarking Environment) [1]-which provides a solution for both tasks: Automatic Testing of new code versions and Time Benchmarking. The configuration of the system was demonstrated using the example of the ERO code [2], however, it can also be applied and extended to other fusion codes.
