fastrand64-go

Helper library for full uint64 randomness, pool backed for efficient concurrency

Inspired by https://github.com/valyala/fastrand which is 20% faster, but not as good a source of randomness.

Install

go get -u github.com/Villenny/fastrand64-go

Notable members:

Xoshiro256ssRNG, SyncPoolRNG,

The expected use case:

  • If you are doing a lot of random indexing on a lot of cores
	import "github.com/villenny/fastrand64-go"

	rng := NewSyncPoolXoshiro256ssRNG()

	// somewhere later, in some goproc, one of lots, like a web request handler for example

	r1 := rng.Uint32n(10)
	r2 := rng.Uint64()
	someBytes := rng.Bytes(256)

Using SyncPoolRNG:

  • I tried to keep everything safe for composition, this way you can use your own random generator if you have one
  • Note the pool uses the the builtin golang threadsafe uint64 rand function to generate seeds for each allocated generator in the pool.
	import "github.com/villenny/concurrency-go"

	// use the helper function to generate a system rand based source
	rand.Seed(1)
	rng := NewSyncPoolRNG(func() UnsafeRNG { return NewUnsafeRandRNG(int64(rand.Uint64())) })

	// use some random thing that has a Uint64() function
	rand.Seed(1)
	rng := NewSyncPoolRNG(func() UnsafeRNG { return rand.New(rand.NewSource(rand.Uint64()).(rand.Source64)) })

Benchmark

  • Xoshiro256ss is roughly 3X faster than whatever golang uses natively
  • The Pool wrapped version of Xoshiro is roughly half as fast as the native threadsafe golang random generator, almost entirely due to the cost of checking into and out of the pool. But I benchmarked on my own machine, and linux might have a faster sync.Pool.
  • BUT, the pool wrapped Xoshiro generator murders the native in a multicore environment where there would otherwise be lots of contention. 4X faster on my 4 core machine in the pathological case of every core doing nothing but generate random numbers.
  • It would probably be faster still (although I havent tested this, unsafe xoshiro256** is 10X faster than the pooled xoshiro256**) to feed each goproc its own unsafe generator in their context arg and not use the pool.
