  • How to identify inefficient method calls?

    If you are uncertain about the performance characteristics of a function you should ALWAYS benchmark it. Googles Benchmark library is wonderful for quick micro benchmarks. For more complex things, perhaps look into profiling and then look at invocation counts of copy constructors.
  • Is there any fast allocator in std lib / boost for fixed size objects (not at compile time) but has deallocation methods?
    1 project | reddit.com/r/cpp_questions | 6 Nov 2021
    Your compiler may be optimising away your loop, there. I typically use a micro-benchmarking tool for these types of tests. You could try Google Benchmark. It’s available in most OS’ package managers, but pretty easy to build from source if not
  • Calculate Your Code Performance

    C++: C++ has quite a number of benchmarking libraries some of the recent ones involving C++ 20's flexibility. The most notable being Google Bench and UT. C does not have many specific benchmarking libraries, but you can easily integrate C code with C++ benchmarking libraries in order to test the performance of your C code.
  • What's Wrong with My Benchmark Results?
    1 project | news.ycombinator.com | 20 Oct 2021
    This is important work, at least partially addressed in other benchmark harnesses (like github.com/google/benchmark has DoNotOptimize and ClobberMemory https://github.com/google/benchmark/blob/7fad964a94da9364af1...). By and large this whole area is criminally under-examined, IMO.

    What I'd really like is for someone to put together a suite of statistical tests that reject poor performance measurements. At a bare minimum performance should look like an IID random variable when you sample it. If not, you haven't reached steady state, or there are correlations between repeated runs, etc.

  • Suggestions for C++ microbenchmarking libraries (ideally) with plotting features
    4 projects | reddit.com/r/cpp | 10 Jun 2021
    GoogleBenchmark can already do it. Output to JSON and write a plotting tool in whatever. What I was missing is to output the difference between two instances of benchmark also in JSON. That was fixed by https://github.com/google/benchmark/pull/1042

    I have tried the one by google and it's nice that it prints out a report with the cache sizes etc so it's easy to paste it in an email without having to have the conversation about "what system was this run on" but I think a successful micorbenchmark library should cut down on:
  • Given two integers N and K, you have to print all +ve numbers below N formed by digits 4,5,6 only that are divisible by K in increasing order.

    Benchmarking is really just timing how long code takes to run. There are some useful libraries like google/benchmark, and even the site Quick C++ Benchmark, which handle all the nitty gritty details and let you focus on the code you are trying to optimise.
  • TDD & c++ - Best practices?
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/cpp | 14 Jan 2021
    Google test is excellent and as it's integrated with visual studios then it seems a good choice. You can add on google/benchmark for micro benchmarks and googlemock for well...mocking.
  • C++ std::unique vs std::set - [Fixed]
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/cpp | 6 Jan 2021
    You are right benchmark is built in DEBUG mode. Frankly, I don't remember setting a DEBUG explicitly, and found this: https://github.com/google/benchmark#debug-vs-release
