Virtual Machine Warmup Blows Hot and Cold: Repeatable Experiment

Edd Barrett, Carl Friedrich Bolz, Rebecca Killick, Sarah Mount, and Laurence Tratt

Repeatable experiments

Our draft paper contains some micro-benchmarks designed to measure the warmup properties of various programming language virtual machines. We believe strongly in repeatability in computing experiments, and thus plan to provide files that allow the experiment to be repeated.

Currently, this paper is in the early stages of publication, and for now we have only published our code, raw data and our run-sequence charts. In the future we plan to provide release tarballs and a VirtualBox VM image.
