STABILIZER: statistically sound performance evaluation

  title={STABILIZER: statistically sound performance evaluation},
  author={Charlie Curtsinger and Emery D. Berger},
Researchers and software developers require effective performance evaluation. Researchers must evaluate optimizations or measure overhead. Software developers use automatic performance regression tests to discover when changes improve or degrade performance. The standard methodology is to compare execution times before and after applying changes. Unfortunately, modern architectural features make this approach unsound. Statistically sound evaluation requires multiple samples to test whether one… CONTINUE READING
