Introduction

RubyBench was born out from Sam Saffron's call for a long running Ruby benchmark.

Benchmark Scripts

Ruby Scripts: https://github.com/ruby/ruby/tree/trunk/benchmark

Discourse Scripts: https://github.com/discourse/discourse/tree/master/script

The scripts are executed in a bare metal server using Docker containers to ensure consistent results. To view how the scripts are executed, head over to https://github.com/ruby-bench/ruby-bench-docker.

Hardware

Our current bare metal server is sponsored by the team over at RubyTune.com.

All benchmarks are run on a bare metal server in order to achieve consistent and repeatable results. We will not publish CPU results gathered on virtual hosts where we can not control our CPU allocation. The only results published are run on production level bare metal servers.

The bare metal server is purchased from Hetzner Online and has the following configurations:

System Type Component
Operating System Ubuntu-1404-trusty-64-minimal
RAM 4 x 8GB Micron ECC, Part Number: 18KSF1G72AZ-1G6E1
Processor 3.6GHz Intel® Xeon® E3-1270 v3 Quad-Core Haswell incl. Hyper-Threading Technology
Hard Drive 2 x Samsung SSD 845DC EVO - 240 GB - 2,5" SATA III
Motherboard Intel Coporation S1200RP

Contribute

Dependencies

  • PostgreSQL 9.x in order to enable the hstore extension.
  • Redis
  • PhantomJS

Setup

redis-server

# Make sure that the current user has a Postgres account 
# If not run : sudo -u postgres createuser <username> -s
bundle exec rake db:setup

unicorn -c config/unicorn.rb

Testing

Install PhantomJS

Note: you can use directory other than $HOME

wget https://bitbucket.org/ariya/phantomjs/downloads/phantomjs-2.1.1-linux-x86_64.tar.bz2 -O $HOME/phantomjs/phantomjs-2.1.1-linux-x86_64.tar.bz2

tar -xvf $HOME/phantomjs/phantomjs-2.1.1-linux-x86_64.tar.bz2 -C $HOME/phantomjs

export PATH=$HOME/phantomjs/phantomjs-2.1.1-linux-x86_64/bin:$PATH


# Check version installed

phantomjs -v

Start redis server if you haven't already

redis-server

Run tests

bundle exec rake test

Operations

This section describes how to operate the server hosting this application.

Run ruby benchmarks manually

Use Admin Console:

https://rubybench.org/admin/repos/ruby

Pattern: "all" is replaced with "", and any other string can filter benchmarks.

Run rake task

docker exec -it [container-id] sudo -E -u rubybench bundle exec rake oneshot:xxx

Run rails console

docker exec -it [container-id] sudo -E -u rubybench bundle exec rails c

Purge chart cache

docker exec -it [container-id] bash -c 'redis-cli KEYS "charts:*" | xargs redis-cli DEL'

Dump and load database

docker exec -it [container-id] sudo -E -u postgres bash -c "pg_dump rubybench_production > /tmp/dump.sql"
docker cp [container-id]:/tmp/dump.sql /tmp/dump.sql
zip /tmp/dump.zip /tmp/dump.sql
scp ruby-bench-server:/tmp/dump.zip /tmp/dump.zip
unzip /tmp/dump.zip -d /
bundle exec rake db:drop db:create RAILS_ENV=development DISABLE_DATABASE_ENVIRONMENT_CHECK=1
cat /tmp/dump.sql | psql -U rubybench ruby-bench-web_development

Update ruby-bench-web repository in container

/var/docker/launcher rebuild rubybench

Deployment

ruby-bench-web

git push origin master:production

and wait for TravisCI...
