The efficiency of software is commonly evaluated with oneor more suites of experiments at compile time or run time. The manual preparation of such experiments is tedious and error-prone, involving tasks such as intercepting the compiler at hand or the resulting binaries with custom measurements. This imposes a practical limit on the number of case studies. We present BenchBuild, a large-scale empirical-research
toolkit that supports 18978 projects for compile-time and 188 projects for run-time testing. BenchBuild automates most of the tasks involved and provides tools that reduce the amount of effort required to increase the test coverage.
