Overview for Mozilla's add-on performance measurements · 2011-04-11 16:55 by Wladimir Palant

I got tired of digging through logs so I created an overview page for AMO’s add-on performance testing results. This shows both the absolute slowdown values as well as percentages for each operating system, along with a link to the corresponding logs. It also shows the standard deviation for each test and flags results that are affected by issues known so far. This week this means:

I guess I will have to re-run that script weekly until AMO fixes the bugs and starts providing affected add-on authors with useful information.

    Good stuff! I think this is great work from your side, that I’d like to be valued a bit more by the AMO people, than Jorge demonstrated here in the comments…
    Keep it up!

    Very good information!

    Indeed is the percentage slowed down very misleading to the degree of being almost meaningless. I’m glad you are as thorough Wladimir.

    However I have a startup time well above 10s for my firefox due to a large amount of addons (61 enabled + 11 disabled + 20 plugins). If these measurements contribute to shortening this rather large startup time I’ll be a little bit happy…

    Great stuff, very detailed.

    You’re doing someone’s job for them. I hope they’re embarrassed.

    Wow, you’ve done a lot of work here. Thanks immensely for digging into this!

    This is brilliant stuff. It’s exactly what we should be seeing on AMO somewhere. Just one tweak: what do the background colours (pink, yellow) indicate? Small key or legend would be ace :)pd

    Reply from Wladimir Palant:

    There are tooltips explaining what these colors indicate.
