GraalVM Compiler Benchmark Results Dataset (Data Artifact)

Publication at Faculty of Mathematics and Physics |


Systematic testing of software performance during development is a persistent challenge, made increasingly important by the magnifying effect of mass software deployment on any savings. In practice, such systematic performance evaluation requires a combination of an efficient and reliable measurement procedure integrated into the development environment, coupled with an automated evaluation of the measurement results and compact reporting of detected performance anomalies.

A realistic evaluation of research contributions to systematic software performance testing can benefit from the availability of measurement data that comes from long term development activities in a well documented context. This paper presents a data artifact that aggregates more than 70 machine time years of performance measurements over 7 years of development of the GraalVM Compiler Project, aiming to reduce the costs of evaluating research contributions in this and similar contexts.
