We're learning towards using BenchmarkJS to run our performance tests in YUI. One of the valuable data-points to capture is the performance of a component across different YUI versions. We'll be able to capture this once components have their performance tests defined.
The test results using the
multi module were compared (running sequentially) to running these tests in separate windows (no cache) and the results were very similar. This implies that this method of comparison is pretty accurate.
If you want to compare performance of your components across different YUI versions using Benchmark, I recommend:
index.htmlin the repo as a template
event-custom-benchmark.jsfile as a template for performance tests.
src/common/and referencing it from there.
This is still rough, and a work in progress, so expect changes and new developments.
