Mako - A performance testing library and service
Mako is a set of tools for pre-production performance testing. It offers:
- data storage
- statistical aggregation
- automated regression analysis
- workflows for triaging potential regressions
Mako is narrowly focused on meeting the performance testing needs of Google open source projects. At this time, Mako is not intended to be used by projects outside this limited scope.
Performance tests that use Mako
Mako client libraries are designed to be called from a client project’s performance test code. See the client project’s documentation for how to run their performance tests.
Mako Command-line Tool
The Mako command-line tool can be used to gain programmatic access to the same Mako data that’s available on the dashboard. This tool is used by benchmark owners to manage their benchmarks and runs.
To learn about how to use the Mako command-line tool, please read CLI.md.
Writing a new performance test using Mako
There are example performance tests in the
Accessing Mako data with the storage libaries
The most common programmatic use of Mako is to create a new run from performance test data, and for that use case we recommend Quickstore. But if you need different kinds of access to the data (e.g. updating or deleting existing data), you’ll want to use the C++ or Go storage library.
