Web page with Beam specification and benchmarks

Interesting benchmark figures. Are you (or anyone else?) aware if anyone has
similar results from relative or absolute performance testing of
distribution and message passing? These seem to be quite difficult to
measure accurately and seem to be as important as sequential processing
speed for most Erlang systems.

On my home page, http://www.ericsson.se/cslab/~bjorn,
you can find the following items, which you might or might not
1. A specification of the Beam file format for the R6B. This does NOT
include the instruction set (I'm working, very slowly, on such a
2. Results of some benchmark runs comparing languages features and
Erlang versions. For instance, you can see that fun calls are
much faster in R6B compared to the previous open source release.
The source code for my "benchmark framework" and my benchmarks
is also available.
