gocostmodel

This package was inspired by Brian W. Kernighan and Rob Pike's book "The Practice of Programming" (Addison-Wesley, 1999). In Chapter 7 on performance, section 7.6 (Estimation):

"It's hard to estimate ahead of time how fast a program will be [...]. It's easy, though, to create a cost model for a language or a system, which will give you at least a rough idea of how long important operations take."

This is a cost model that benchmarks common basic operations for the Go language. For it to be meaningful, it should be run on your target hardware, and the relative performance of operations is probably more important than the actual numbers. Examples of such results on a variety of hardware is available in the bench/ folder.

There may be places where compiler optimizations render some benchmarks moot. If you find any such occurrences, please open an issue or send a pull request.

The names of the *_test.go source files should give an idea of the category of operations that are benchmarked.

Example

Here is a short example of benchmark results, run on a Toshiba Chromebook 64-bit running Ubuntu (LXDE) with crouton:
