Continuous benchmark suite for the scikit-learn project. For more information, check out http://vene.github.com/scikit-learn-speed
In order to run the benchmarks on your own machine, please follow these steps.
Clone the repository somewhere, for example
Extract the datasets:
cd ~/code/scikit-learn-speed/benchmarks tar jxvf data.tar.bz2
Create the configuration file
~/.vbench-skl. For example:
[setup] repo_path = /Users/vene/code/scikit-learn repo_url = firstname.lastname@example.org:scikit-learn/scikit-learn.git db_path = /Users/vene/code/scikit-learn-speed/benchmarks/benchmarks.db tmp_dir = /tmp/vb_sklearn
The values displayed above are hardcoded defaults, and they are used in case
the configuration value doesn't exist, or to override skipped values.
Specifically, this means you don't have to bother to set
make. This will call:
make run, which runs the benchmark suite,
make rst, which generates the Sphinx sources for the reports,
make html, which builds the HTML reports from the sources.

The following datasets are available:
- arcene: train: (100, 10000), test: (100, 10000)
- madelon: train: (2000, 500), test: (600, 500)
- minimadelon: train: (30, 500), test: (20, 500), 10 output
- blobs: train: (300, 50) test: (200, 50), 10 tight centers
- newsgroups: sparse, train: (11214, 130088), test: (7432, 130088)
In addition, you can append the following options to any dataset's name:
-oney: Only keeps the first output, i. e.
y = y[:, 0]. Necessary for estimators that don't support multidimensional output arrays.
-semi: Unlabels samples at random, by setting the corresponding output to
-1. Useful for semi-supervised algorithms.
