1. The ghost in the machine: Don't let it haunt your software performance measurements
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1830
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: 4/28/2014
Authors: Vreda Pieterse, David W Flater
Abstract: This paper describes pitfalls, issues, and methodology for measuring software performance. Ideally, measurement should be performed and reported in such a way that others will be able to reproduce the results in order to confirm their validity. W ...
