title="Performance regression testing"
Subtle changes in NetBSD may carry a significant performance penalty.
Having a realistic performance test for various areas will allow us to
find offending commits.
Ideally, it would be possible to run the same tests on other operating
systems so we can identify points for improvement.
It would be good to test for specific cases as well, such as:
* Network operation with a packet filter in use
* Typical disk workload
* Performance of a multi-threaded program
> Insert good performance testsuite examples here
It would be nice to easily test commits between particular dates. Automated
runs could be implemented with the help of py-anita.
