Let me know if “core workflow” is not the proper forum.
The python org has access to a machine to run benchmarks at
speed-python.osuosl.org, this is the machine that drives results uploaded to
We had a short discussion on the
firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list top of the thread which began the discussion of how to run benchmarks tests via a cron job, but it was never resolved.
I would like to propose that there be a buildbot job to run benchmarks, and that a buildbot slave run on that machine. I am willing to help set that up. My desire to do this is tied to getting alternate interpreter implementations (i.e. PyPy) also connected. So my questions are
- is this the right place to be asking about this?
- what needs to be done to get a new buildbot benchmark job defined?
- can we use
speed-python.osuosl.orgto run a slave for that job?
- can we also benchmark PyPy?
