autobench is a framework to compare the performance of Go 1.2 and Go 1.3.
autobench downloads and builds the latest Go 1.1 and Go tip branches and runs a set of Go 1 benchmarks for comparison.
Useful targets are
make bench # runs all benchmarks, _once_ make go1 # runs bench/go1 benchmarks _once_ make runtime # runs bench/runtime benchmarks _once_ make http # runs bench/http benchmarks _once_ make float # runs bench/float benchmarks _once_ make extra # runs extra benchmarks. make clean # removes any previous benchmark results make update # updates both branches to the latest revision, clears any benchmark results
You can optionally benchmark with gccgo instead of gc by either uncommenting the corresponding line in the Makefile or by setting TESTFLAGS to an appropriate value:
make TESTFLAGS=-compiler=gccgo bench
- If you are benchmarking on Freebsd, you may need to use
Contributions and pull requests are always welcome. If you are submitting a pull request with benchmark data, please include the value of OLD and NEW at the top of the Makefile in the suffix of your file (follow the examples) so we can trace which revision this benchmark was taken from. If you want to include commentry in your benchmark, comments should start with a #.
