  1. Log files document computation performance for each tool used in this benchmarking study. Documentation from a single run shows memory (mem) usage and CPU time need to run each tool on Arabidopsis (Tair) and on the Human dataset used in the benchmarking. Additional columns refer to the type of algorithm used (PE: Paired-end; SR: Split-read) and the SVs that the tool is reported to be able to predict (I: Insertion; D: Deletion; V: Inversion; T: Translocation; P: Duplication). Raw log files are included in the supplementary data.
