Earlier this year I wrote a small harness to compare the relative performance of Go 1.0 and the then just released Go 1.1. You can read the posts about the Go 1.1 performance improvements: amd64, 386 and arm.
Using autobench is very simple, clone the repository and run
make to produce a benchmark on your machine.
% cd devel % git clone -b autobench-next https://github.com/davecheney/autobench.git % cd autobench % make
You can stay up to date with the
% make update % make
Contributions and benchmark results are always welcome. As the Go 1.2 cycle draws to a close I will merge this branch back into
master replacing the older 1.0 vs 1.1 comparisons.
