The fibon package

[Tags: bsd3, program]

Fibon is a set of tools for running and analyzing benchmark programs. The fibon package contains the tools for benchmarking, but not the benchmarks themselves. The package will build, but will not have any benchmarks to run. A set of benchmarks can be found in the github repo

Fibon is a pure Haskell framework for running and analyzing benchmarks. Cabal is used for building the benchmarks, and the benchmark harness, configuration files, and benchmark descriptions are all written in Haskell. The benchmark descriptions and run configurations are all statically compiled into the benchmark runner to ensure that configuration errors are found at compile time.

The Fibon tools are not tied to any compiler infrastructure and can build benchmarks using any compiler supported by cabal. However, there are some extra features available when using GHC to build the benchmarks: * Support in config files for inplace GHC HEAD builds * Support in fibon-run for collecting GC stats from GHC compiled programs * Support in fibon-analyse for reading GC stats from Fibon result files
