Tcl Benchmarks

Jeffrey Hobbs: There have been discussions about the changing relative speed of Tcl over the years (primarily rotating around the addition of the byte-code compiler - faster, but then also the changes to support i18n - slower).

I created the tclbench [2 ] application to get a better understanding of what has truly happened to performance over the years, with the forward looking view of finding the pain points and fixing them. Anyone can get tclbench from CVS [1 ] to do relative benchmarks themselves, but below I've posted the results from a full run over the benchmark suite. All builds represent the final code of that version.

A few have noted that these numbers aren't the easiest to read overall, which I can agree with. Take a look at the Tcl Normalized Benchmarks that set 8.4 as a norm of 1.0 to compare against. For those looking for more complete version-by-version comparisons, see Tcl Extended Benchmarks.

If you've got BLT handy, then here is a little code for Plotting Tcl Benchmarks.

The speed enhancements in 8.4 are primarily achieved by work done by myself (JH) and Eric Melski at Ajuba and continued at ActiveState. Addition optimizations are also done by Miguel Sofer. Additional major enhancements in 8.5 done by JH, Miguel Sofer and Donal Fellows. 8.5 added bignums, which slowed down expr handling in general. 8.6 has a new non-recursive (stackless) bytecode engine.

For those interested in the use of threads for concurrent processing, please see the Tcl Benchmarks with Threads.

The numbers are microseconds, but you should only look at them relative to each other. Lower is better. There is some fluctuation expected as Tcl's 'time' does wall timing, not true cpu time. In any case, these were done on a 2.66ghz Intel i7 MBP with 8GB physmem running OS X 10.6.4. All interpreters were compiled static with no threads using gcc 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5664) with -O2 (no -mcpu modifiers). The "elapsed" time can also be misleading because runbench v1.23+ uses an autoscaling check to try and make sure each test runs at least .1s and at most 4s. Also, as interp version gets older, fewer tests are run.

Discussion and Analysis

JH: The numbers below by Kevin are for a previous set of numbers, and need updating (note only 8.4a3 is mentioned). The only thing likely to change though is to show that 8.4 is pulling ahead in performance.

Kevin Kenny: For those that insist on a single figure of merit, I took these numbers, normalized them to a scale of 8.4a3 == 1.0, and then took the harmonic mean of all benchmarks.

Version Relative Speed Comments
7.6p2 0.125 The last version without bytecode compilation
8.0.5 0.736 Bytecode compilation initially sped things up by a factor of about 6.
8.2.3 0.600 The cost of internationalization was that things got about 20% slower.
8.3.1 0.606 Not much change here...
8.4a3 1.000 The reference against which the others were measured. Many more operations are bytecoded, which gains about 50% in speed.
8.5.? ????? Much more bytecoding, but many operations slowed down to support new features (especially clock and arbitrary-width integers).

As with all benchmarks, take these numbers with a spoonful of salt!
