[][src]Crate criterion

A statistics-driven micro-benchmarking library written in Rust.

This crate is a microbenchmarking library which aims to provide strong statistical confidence in detecting and estimating the size of performance improvements and regressions, while also being easy to use.

See the user guide for examples as well as details on the measurement and analysis process, and the output.

Features:

Modules

measurement

This module defines a set of traits that can be used to plug different measurements (eg. Unix's Processor Time, CPU or GPU performance counters, etc.) into Criterion.rs. It also includes the WallTime struct which defines the default wall-clock time measurement.

profiler

This module provides an extension trait which allows in-process profilers to be hooked into the --profile-time argument at compile-time. Users of out-of-process profilers such as perf don't need to do anything special.

Macros

criterion_group

Macro used to define a function group for the benchmark harness; see the criterion_main! macro for more details.

criterion_main

Macro which expands to a benchmark harness.

Structs

Bencher

Timer struct used to iterate a benchmarked function and measure the runtime.

BenchmarkGroup

Structure used to group together a set of related benchmarks, along with custom configuration settings for groups of benchmarks. All benchmarks performed using a benchmark group will be grouped together in the final report.

BenchmarkId

Simple structure representing an ID for a benchmark. The ID must be unique within a benchmark group.

Criterion

The benchmark manager

PlotConfiguration

Contains the configuration options for the plots generated by a particular benchmark or benchmark group.

Enums

AxisScale

Axis scaling type

Baseline

Baseline describes how the baseline_directory is handled.

BatchSize

Argument to Bencher::iter_batched and Bencher::iter_batched_ref which controls the batch size.

Throughput

Enum representing different ways of measuring the throughput of benchmarked code. If the throughput setting is configured for a benchmark then the estimated throughput will be reported as well as the time per iteration.

Functions

black_box

A function that is opaque to the optimizer, used to prevent the compiler from optimizing away computations in a benchmark.
