tach

Simple benchmarking with noticeable progress and pretty results.

Writing Benchmarks

Benchmarks are pretty easy, I'll explain a simple example

Tach.meter(4) do

  tach('first') do
    sleep(rand)
  end

  tach('second') do
    sleep(rand)
  end

end

The optional argument to meter tells it how many times to run each tach (it defaults to 1) Each tach should have a name, so you can recognize them in the results Then inside the tach block you should specify the code you care about comparing. The name of each tach will be displayed as it starts

For things requiring more complex setup you can make them do their own iteration, for instance:

Tach.meter(4) do

  tach('complex') do |count|
    duration = rand
    count.times do
      sleep(duration)
    end
  end

end
