* You can run benchmarks and generate histogram for compare calls to each other:

.. code-block:: bash

tox -- tests/performance --benchmark-histogram

* You can run benchmarks and save results for later compare:

.. code-block:: bash

tox -- tests/performance --benchmark-save=foo

* You can run benchmarks and compare with the last saved result with fail treshold:

.. code-block:: bash

tox -- tests/performance --benchmark-histogram --benchmark-compare --benchmark-compare-fail=mean:5% --benchmark-sort=name

* You can run benchmarks and compare with the last saved result by groups:

.. code-block:: bash

tox -- tests/performance --benchmark-histogram --benchmark-compare --benchmark-group-by=func

tox -- tests/performance --benchmark-histogram --benchmark-compare --benchmark-group-by=name
