A small, convenient benchmark-library.
Displays relative performance; "B was 1.4x slower than A"
Returns benchmark-results as Array of Hashes (for easy integration with your unit-tests or CI)
Output can be customized with a simple Plugin-API (ships with plugins for TSV and HTML)
High precision (via hitimes)
gem install b
#!/usr/bin/env ruby require 'b' B.enchmark('Sleep "performance"', :rounds => 10, :compare => :mean) do job '300ms' do sleep 0.3 end job '100ms' do sleep 0.1 end job '200ms' do sleep 0.2 end end
-- Sleep "performance" --------------------------------------------------------------- rounds r/s mean max min ± stddev x mean 100ms 10 9.99 100.13 100.17 100.11 0.02 1.00 200ms 10 5.00 200.14 200.17 200.11 0.02 2.00 300ms 10 3.33 300.13 300.18 300.11 0.02 3.00
