[PATCH v3 0/7] Codespeed perf results

This patch series is built on top of cc/perf-run-config which recently
graduated to master.

It makes it possible to send perf results to a Codespeed server. See
https://github.com/tobami/codespeed/ and web sites like
http://speed.pypy.org/ which are using Codespeed.

The end goal would be to have such a server always available to track
how the different git commands perform over time on different kind of
repos (small, medium, large, ...) with different optimizations on and
off (split-index, libpcre2, BLK_SHA1, ...)

With this series and a config file like:

$ cat perf.conf
        dirsOrRevs = v2.12.0 v2.13.0
        repeatCount = 10
        sendToCodespeed = http://localhost:8000
        repoName = Git repo
[perf "with libpcre"]
        makeOpts = "DEVELOPER=1 USE_LIBPCRE=YesPlease"
[perf "without libpcre"]
        makeOpts = "DEVELOPER=1"

One should be able to just launch:

$ ./run --config perf.conf p7810-grep.sh

and then get nice graphs in a Codespeed instance running on


For now one has to create the "Git repo" environment (in fact all the
values of the "environment" field sent to Codespeed) in the Codespeed
admin interface. (We send the perf.repoName config variable in the
"environment" Codespeed field.) This is because Codespeed requires the
environment fields to be created and does not provide a simple way to
create these fields programmatically.

There are discussions on a Codespeed issue
(https://github.com/tobami/codespeed/issues/232) about creating a
proper API for Codespeed that could address this problem in the

Changes since previous version

There are very few changes compared to v2:

  - In patch 1/7 commit message has been improved following a comment
    by Junio.

  - In patch 3/7 some debugging comments were removed and 'use JSON;'
    was moved to the top of aggregate.perl as suggested by Junio.
