benchmaster

0.2.0 • Public • Published

benchmaster

A small wrapper around Benchmark.js. Written to run synchronous benchmarks with minimal hassle and with as little code as possible.

$ npm install benchmaster

Syntax

bench = function (functions, [fill], [callback])
  • functions
    • object to benchmark, either one function, functions in an array ([f, g]) or custom-named functions in a array of tuples ([['add', function (a, b) { return a + b; }]]).
  • [fill]
    • argument filler function, gets called on every cycle and looks like this: function ([name], [pos]), where name is the name of the function and pos is the argument index.
  • [callback]
    • called with a data object when benchmark is done (if no callback is found the results of the benchmarks are printed to stdout).

Examples

Let's start off with the simplest example:

var bench = require('benchmaster');
 
bench(Math.sin);
// sin x 8,797,665 ops/sec ±1.55% (85 runs sampled)
 
bench([Math.sin, Math.cos, Math.tan]);
// sin x 9,136,143 ops/sec ±0.72% (89 runs sampled)
// cos x 8,885,802 ops/sec ±0.85% (92 runs sampled)
// tan x 7,802,008 ops/sec ±0.73% (90 runs sampled)

Above examples will automatically fill all missing arguments with Math.random() every cycle (this is the standard behaviour).

Using the callback function

bench(
  [Math.sin, Math.cos, Math.tan],
  null,
  function (data) {
    for (var target in data)
      if (data.hasOwnProperty(target))
        console.log(String(data[target]));
  }
);

Using custom arguments

// Generate arguments once before the benchmarks begin
function fillOnce() {
  return -1 + Math.random() * 2;
}
 
// If fillOnce gives us the value -0.15,
// the benchmark will run Math.sin(-0.15) every cycle
 
bench(Math.sin, fillOnce);
 
// Generate arguments every cycle
function fillEvery() {
  return function () {
    return -1 + Math.random() * 2;
  };
}
 
// In contrast to above, here the inner function
// will generate new arguments every cycle
 
bench(Math.sin, fillEvery);
