Check out the HINT (Hierarchical Integration) benchmark:

HINT is somewhat unique in that it produces not just a single number,
but a graph showing the results over a large range of data set sizes.
The resulting graph makes it trivial to see how performance degrades
as the working set size exceeds the data caches and even the physical
memory. This can be done manually with some benchmarks (like LINPACK),
but with HINT it's designed in.
