Introduction

This egg provides means to benchmark your code in a simple manner. It features traditional benchmarking with microsecond resolution as well as a different approach that has been inspired by: https://github.com/evanphx/benchmark-ips

Examples

(use micro-benchmark)

;; simply measure the runtime of the given fragment
(benchmark-measure (sleep 2)) 

;; run code 3 times and return results
(parameterize ((current-benchmark-iterations 3))
  (benchmark-run (sleep 1)))

;; find out how many iterations we can make per second
(benchmark-ips (sleep 2))

API

[parameter] current-benchmark-iterations

The amount of iterations that are used in benchmark-run. This defaults to 100.

[syntax] (benchmark-measure ?code)

Runs the ?code once and returns the runtime in microseconds.

[syntax] (benchmark-run [iterations] ?code)

Runs the ?code iterations times and returns an alist with the following keys:

If iterations is not given then curren-benchmark-iterations is used.

[syntax] (benchmark-ips [seconds] ?code)

Determines how many times one can run the given ?code per second and returns an alist with the following keys:

If seconds is not given then it defaults to 5.
