You might want to look at erlbench here https://github.com/okeuday/erlbench since it has the same basic purpose, and allows you to use different compilation methods now (through the makefile specifying an optimization level).  The erlbench project is also ad-hoc, but it has been enough to produce results in the past.

The other option is trying to use basho_bench here https://github.com/basho/basho_bench, if you are testing key/value storage.
