Thank you for mentioning ecriterion (https://github.com/jlouis/ecriterion/), I hadn't seen that previously.  It doesn't seem to have any tests or analysis yet, but I think it would be great if we could get a common Erlang testing project going.

The erlbench project is also ad-hoc, but it has been enough to produce results in the past.
