Compact MJIT methods to single so file #1921

wants to merge 6 commits into from


Copy link

commented Jul 28, 2018

This is for


In some conditions, this patch compacts all .o files to one .so file and load all methods from it again to improve memory locality of generated code. As this is an experimental version, MJIT attempts the compaction and reload only when one of following conditions are met:

  • All queued methods are already compiled
  • The number of compiled methods is the same as --jit-max-cache (default: 1000)


In this benchmark, I'll compare following four conditions:

  • trunk: r64082
  • trunk JIT: r64082 w/ --jit
  • single-so JIT: This PR w/ --jit
  • objfcn JIT: This branch w/ --jit, which is shinh's objfcn rebased from this PR

Micro benchmark

Using this script, calls some amount of different methods that just return nil. The following tables are its average duration seconds of 3 measurements.

Smaller is better.

Using the same benchmark strategy as with this branch forked from discourse v1.8.11 to support running trunk.

  1. Run ruby script/bench.rb to warm up profiling database
  2. Run RUBYOPT='--jit-verbose=1 --jit-max-cache=10000' RAILS_ENV=profile bin/puma -e production
  3. WAIT 5-15 or so minutes for all jitting to stop so we have no cross talk
  4. Run ab -n 100 http://localhost:9292/
  5. Wait for all new jitting to finish
  6. Run ab -n 100 http://localhost:9292/

Response time (ms)

Here is the response time milliseconds for each percentile. Skipping 99%ile because it's the same as 100%ile in 100 calls.

Ratio (smaller is better)

Here is the response time increase ratio against no-JIT trunk's one. Bold results are ones faster than no-JIT trunk.
