[Avrora] Call for benchmarks

I have been talking to the DaCapo group about getting Avrora included
as a pure-Java benchmark for VM performance in the next release of the
DaCapo benchmarks. Avrora has a number of interesting properties
(other than being my brainchild :-)) that make it a unique, real-world
testcase to study and improve Java VM performance.
The trouble is, being a simulator, Avrora's dynamic behavior can vary
a huge amount depending on the input program(s), the communication
characteristics, and the instrumentation attached.
I would like your help in identifying a series of input programs and
simulation scenarios that stress Avrora, particularly in highly multi-
threaded execution, such as a large sensor network simulation.
What kinds of apps are you guys running that do non-trivial
communication and computation? Having been out of the WSN community
for a while, I am little behind. What TinyOS example apps are good
showcases (and also work in Avrora)?
Thanks for your help.
