Microbenchmark to test runtime of truncate or zero-extend vector operations in AArch64

Authored by nilanjana_basu on Oct 19 2022, 10:59 AM.



Add benchmarks to check runtime of truncate or zero-extend vector operations in AArch64.
This patch adds an initial set of benchmarks to check runtime of vectorized truncate or zero-extend operations in a loop for different vector types over different vector widths.
The goal of this initial benchmark is to check the impact of D133495, D135229 and D120571.

Thanks for the patch! I think it would be good to move the benchmark to a different file, as it is unrelated to measuring runtime check performance.

It should be sufficient to use a much larger iteration count like 10000, the main benchmark loop will make sure the function is run long enough to collect stable data.

I don't think this is doing what you want at the moment. Instead of truncating to to i8 it is extending from i8. B and A should probably be flipped?

It looks like this is missing the main benchmark loop that google benchmark requires:

Made a separate file for testing vector operations for truncate or zero extend. Added tests for truncate of different types of data types, with different vectorization width settings.

Fixed a mistake where the same test was being ran twice

nilanjana_basu retitled this revision from Microbenchmark to test runtime of truncate vector operations in AArch64 to Microbenchmark to test runtime of truncate or zero-extend vector operations in AArch64.

Extended it to be generic enough for both truncate & zero-extend vector operations

All the comments have been addressed in the latest patch.

Removed the addition operation to keep only the truncate or zero-extend operation for a more focused performance comparison

I think this looks reasonable now.
