The Python Performance Benchmark SuiteΒΆ

The pyperformance project is intended to be an authoritative source of benchmarks for all Python implementations. The focus is on real-world benchmarks, rather than synthetic benchmarks, using whole applications when possible.

pyperformance is distributed under the MIT license.


Other Python Benchmarks:

See also the Python speed mailing list and the Python pyperf module (used by pyperformance).

pyperformance is not tuned for PyPy yet: use the PyPy benchmarks project instead to measure PyPy performances.
