Investigate measurement of reductions #156
@ijcd (I hope that's the one) stopped by in the
For non I/O bound or heavy NIF using benchmarks reductions could be utilized to measure more or less how complex a given function is and as such could even be used in test/CI environment to catch performance degradations as reductions shouldn't (in theory) change under load and therefore might be more reliable in notoriously busy systems.
Before we get there, there's still a lot of other stuff to do and some to research.
Here are some great pointers also for learning about BEAM internals in general (provided by @ijcd in slack):
