Dumbbench::Instance - A benchmark instance within a Dumbbench
use Dumbbench; my $bench = Dumbbench->new( target_rel_precision => 0.005, # seek ~0.5% initial_runs => 20, # the higher the more reliable ); $bench->add_instances( Dumbbench::Instance::Cmd->new(name => 'mauve', command => [qw(perl -e 'something')]), # ... more things to benchmark ... ); $bench->run(); # ...
This module is the base class for all benchmark instances. For example, for benchmarking external commands, you should use Dumbbench::Instance::Cmd.
The synopsis shows how instances of subclasses of
Dumbbench::Instance are added to a benchmark run.
Constructor that takes named arguments. In this base class, the only recognized argument is an instance
Returns the internal array reference of timings or undef if there aren't any.
timings but for dry-run timings.
Returns the name of the instance.
Returns a full (deep) copy of the object. May have to be augmented in subclasses.
Needs to be implemented in subclasses: A method that performs a single benchmark run and returns the duration of the run in seconds.
Needs to be implemented in subclasses: A method that performs a single dry-run and returns the duration of the run in seconds.
If the optional SOOT module is installed,
Dumbbench can generate histograms of the timing distributions.
This method creates such a histogram object (of type
TH1D) and returns it. If
SOOT is not available, this method returns the empty list.
timings_as_histogram, but for the timings from dry-runs.
Number::WithError does the Gaussian error propagation.
SOOT can optionally generate histograms from the timing distributions.
