A few years ago I developed a package benchmark your computer. The general idea is to run a set of tests on different machines and compare the speed. For example,
Unfortunately, due to changes/improvements in R (in particular the changes to the byte compiler), I've had to start collecting data again.
So if you have a few minutes to spare, would you mind benchmarking your system? Once I have a few more benchmarks, I'll update the CRAN package.
The package is on github. To run the benchmarks, install the package
# Need at least R 3.5 devtools::install_github("csgillespie/benchmarkme-data") devtools::install_github("csgillespie/benchmarkme")
Then to run the computational benchmarks
library(benchmarkme) r = benchmark_std() plot(r) # Compare to others upload_results(r) # Upload results
You can also compare read/write speeds
r = benchmark_io() plot(r) # Compare to others upload_results(r)
You can also compare your parallel speed:
r = benchmark_std(cores = 4) plot(r) # Compare to others upload_results(r)
