Beamchmark - tool for measuring BEAM performance

Hi,
Beamchmark is a very simple tool for measuring BEAM performance.
Sometimes when you want to check how busy is your EVM it might be better to check its schedulers utilization instead of CPU usage provided e.g. by htop. This is beacause of schedulers busy waiting.

You can specify custom scenario by implementing Beamchmark.Scenario behaviour.
Next, Beamchmark will measure BEAM performance (at the moment scheduler utilization, context switches and reductions) while running this scenario.
When running for the second time it will also compare current results with the previous ones.

We use it for measuring video conference system performance.

You can check it out under GitHub - membraneframework/beamchmark: Elixir tool for benchmarking EVM performance
