[][src]Struct criterion::Criterion

pub struct Criterion<M: Measurement = WallTime> { /* fields omitted */ }

The benchmark manager

Criterion lets you configure and execute benchmarks

Each benchmark consists of four phases:

Implementations

impl<M: Measurement> Criterion<M>[src]

pub fn with_measurement<M2: Measurement>(self, m: M2) -> Criterion<M2>[src]

Changes the measurement for the benchmarks run with this runner. See the Measurement trait for more details

pub fn with_profiler<P: Profiler + 'static>(self, p: P) -> Criterion<M>[src]

Changes the internal profiler for benchmarks run with this runner. See the Profiler trait for more details.

pub fn plotting_backend(self, backend: PlottingBackend) -> Criterion<M>[src]

Set the plotting backend. By default, Criterion will use gnuplot if available, or plotters if not.

Panics if backend is PlottingBackend::Gnuplot and gnuplot is not available.

pub fn sample_size(self, n: usize) -> Criterion<M>[src]

Changes the default size of the sample for benchmarks run with this runner.

A bigger sample should yield more accurate results if paired with a sufficiently large measurement time.

Sample size must be at least 10.

Panics

Panics if n < 10

pub fn warm_up_time(self, dur: Duration) -> Criterion<M>[src]

Changes the default warm up time for benchmarks run with this runner.

Panics

Panics if the input duration is zero

pub fn measurement_time(self, dur: Duration) -> Criterion<M>[src]

Changes the default measurement time for benchmarks run with this runner.

With a longer time, the measurement will become more resilient to transitory peak loads caused by external programs

Note: If the measurement time is too "low", Criterion will automatically increase it

Panics

Panics if the input duration in zero

pub fn nresamples(self, n: usize) -> Criterion<M>[src]

Changes the default number of resamples for benchmarks run with this runner.

Number of resamples to use for the bootstrap

A larger number of resamples reduces the random sampling errors, which are inherent to the bootstrap method, but also increases the analysis time

Panics

Panics if the number of resamples is set to zero

pub fn noise_threshold(self, threshold: f64) -> Criterion<M>[src]

Changes the default noise threshold for benchmarks run with this runner. The noise threshold is used to filter out small changes in performance, even if they are statistically significant. Sometimes benchmarking the same code twice will result in small but statistically significant differences solely because of noise. This provides a way to filter out some of these false positives at the cost of making it harder to detect small changes to the true performance of the benchmark.

The default is 0.01, meaning that changes smaller than 1% will be ignored.

Panics

Panics if the threshold is set to a negative value

pub fn confidence_level(self, cl: f64) -> Criterion<M>[src]

Changes the default confidence level for benchmarks run with this runner. The confidence level is the desired probability that the true runtime lies within the estimated confidence interval. The default is 0.95, meaning that the confidence interval should capture the true value 95% of the time.

Panics

Panics if the confidence level is set to a value outside the (0, 1) range

pub fn significance_level(self, sl: f64) -> Criterion<M>[src]

Changes the default significance level for benchmarks run with this runner. This is used to perform a hypothesis test to see if the measurements from this run are different from the measured performance of the last run. The significance level is the desired probability that two measurements of identical code will be considered 'different' due to noise in the measurements. The default value is 0.05, meaning that approximately 5% of identical benchmarks will register as different due to noise.

This presents a trade-off. By setting the significance level closer to 0.0, you can increase the statistical robustness against noise, but it also weaken's Criterion.rs' ability to detect small but real changes in the performance. By setting the significance level closer to 1.0, Criterion.rs will be more able to detect small true changes, but will also report more spurious differences.

See also the noise threshold setting.

Panics

Panics if the significance level is set to a value outside the (0, 1) range

pub fn with_plots(self) -> Criterion<M>[src]

Enables plotting

pub fn without_plots(self) -> Criterion<M>[src]

Disables plotting

pub fn can_plot(&self) -> bool[src]

Return true if generation of the plots is possible.

pub fn save_baseline(self, baseline: String) -> Criterion<M>[src]

Names an explicit baseline and enables overwriting the previous results.

pub fn retain_baseline(self, baseline: String) -> Criterion<M>[src]

Names an explicit baseline and disables overwriting the previous results.

pub fn with_filter<S: Into<String>>(self, filter: S) -> Criterion<M>[src]

Filters the benchmarks. Only benchmarks with names that contain the given string will be executed.

pub fn configure_from_args(self) -> Criterion<M>[src]

Configure this criterion struct based on the command-line arguments to this process.

pub fn benchmark_group<S: Into<String>>(
    &mut self,
    group_name: S
) -> BenchmarkGroup<M>
[src]

Return a benchmark group. All benchmarks performed using a benchmark group will be grouped together in the final report.

Examples:

#[macro_use] extern crate criterion;
use self::criterion::*;

fn bench_simple(c: &mut Criterion) {
    let mut group = c.benchmark_group("My Group");

    // Now we can perform benchmarks with this group
    group.bench_function("Bench 1", |b| b.iter(|| 1 ));
    group.bench_function("Bench 2", |b| b.iter(|| 2 ));
    
    group.finish();
}
criterion_group!(benches, bench_simple);
criterion_main!(benches);

Panics:

Panics if the group name is empty

impl<M> Criterion<M> where
    M: Measurement + 'static, 
[src]

pub fn bench_function<F>(&mut self, id: &str, f: F) -> &mut Criterion<M> where
    F: FnMut(&mut Bencher<M>), 
[src]

Benchmarks a function. For comparing multiple functions, see benchmark_group.

Example

#[macro_use] extern crate criterion;
use self::criterion::*;

fn bench(c: &mut Criterion) {
    // Setup (construct data, allocate memory, etc)
    c.bench_function(
        "function_name",
        |b| b.iter(|| {
            // Code to benchmark goes here
        }),
    );
}

criterion_group!(benches, bench);
criterion_main!(benches);

pub fn bench_with_input<F, I>(
    &mut self,
    id: BenchmarkId,
    input: &I,
    f: F
) -> &mut Criterion<M> where
    F: FnMut(&mut Bencher<M>, &I), 
[src]

Benchmarks a function with an input. For comparing multiple functions or multiple inputs, see benchmark_group.

Example

#[macro_use] extern crate criterion;
use self::criterion::*;

fn bench(c: &mut Criterion) {
    // Setup (construct data, allocate memory, etc)
    let input = 5u64;
    c.bench_with_input(
        BenchmarkId::new("function_name", input), &input,
        |b, i| b.iter(|| {
            // Code to benchmark using input `i` goes here
        }),
    );
}

criterion_group!(benches, bench);
criterion_main!(benches);
