The NoSlow package

[Tags: bsd3, program]

NoSlow is a benchmark suite for several Haskell array libraries: standard lists, primitive sequential arrays from the DPH project, uvector, vector (primitive, storable and boxed arrays) and storablevector. At the moment, it implements a bunch of fairly random loop micro-kernels and a couple of small array algorithms. It will include many more benchmarks in the future.

In its present state, NoSlow /cannot/ be used to reliably compare the performance of the benchmarked libraries. It can be quite helpful for identifying cases where a closer inspection of the generated code might be warranted, however.

The package builds two binaries: @noslow@ and @noslow-table@.

[@noslow -o log@] runs the benchmarks and writes the results to 'log'

[@noslow-table log -o table.html --html@] outputs the results from @log@ as a HTML table.

[@noslow-table log -o table.html --raw --csv@] outputs the results from @log@ as a CSV file suitable for importing into spreadsheets.

[@noslow-table --diff log1 log2@ -o table.html@] produces a table comparing the results from 'log1' and 'log2' (2 means the first run was 2x slower than the second; 0.5 means 2x faster).

[@noslow-table --help@] lists additional options.

NoSlow is described in more detail here: <>.
