Re: Continuous benchmarking setup
Currently, there are 3 snowflakes :)
- Benchmark setup: https://github.com/TomAugspurger/asv-runner
+ Some setup to bootstrap a clean install with airflow, conda, asv,
supervisor, etc. All the infrastructure around running the benchmarks.
+ Each project adds itself to the list of benchmarks, as in
https://github.com/TomAugspurger/asv-runner/pull/3. Then things are
re-deployed. Deployment requires ansible and an SSH key for the benchmark
- Benchmark publishing: After running all the benchmarks, the results are
collected and pushed to https://github.com/tomaugspurger/asv-collection
- Benchmark hosting: A cron job on the server hosting pandas docs pulls
https://github.com/tomaugspurger/asv-collection and serves them from the
There are many things that could be improved on here, but I personally
won't have time in the near term. Happy to assist though.
