Build2

This test profile measures the time to bootstrap/install the build2 C++ build toolchain from source. Build2 is a cross-platform build toolchain for C/C++ code and features Cargo-like features.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark build2.

Time To Compile

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 485 public results since 22 March 2023 with the latest data as of 20 February 2024.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.

Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (Build2 0.15 - Time To Compile) has an average run-time of 16 minutes. By default this test profile is set to run at least 3 times but may increase if the standard deviation exceeds pre-defined defaults or other calculations deem additional runs necessary for greater statistical accuracy of the result.

Does It Scale Well With Increasing Cores?

Yes, based on the automated analysis of the collected public benchmark data, this test / test settings does generally scale well with increasing CPU core counts. Data based on publicly available results for this test / test settings, separated by vendor, result divided by the reference CPU clock speed, grouped by matching physical CPU core count, and normalized against the smallest core count tested from each vendor for each CPU having a sufficient number of test samples and statistically significant data.
