Why code benchmarks are critical for CI/CD?
- It can be easy to forget about benchmarks. You can be busy with your daily work and not even notice that your builds and deployments are slow. And then one day, you will be waiting for your builds to finish and you will realize that something is wrong.
- Benchmarks prevent such an unpleasant situation. You can see if your builds are slow. And you can see if your application is slow. You can also see how your application behaves during a deployment.
- Code benchmarks tell you how your application performs from different points of view – from the user’s point of view, from your team’s point of view.
