Wrote up one part of the analysis stuff I've written over the past few months:

Skia is an open source cross platform 2D graphics library. In Skia, like many other software projects, we have large number of performance tests, aka benchmarks, and we run those benchmarks every time we change the code. Just having a large number of benchmarks isn’t a problem, but being cross platform means running those tests across many different platforms; Linux, Mac, Windows, Android, ChromeOS, on different GPUs, etc. which leads to a combinatorial explosion in benchmark results. For every commit to Skia today the testing infrastructure generates approximately 40,000 benchmark measurements. That number of results tends to change frequently as tests, platforms, and configurations are added and removed regularly. The number of results has been over 70,000 per commit in the past several months.
