Recently my friend and benchee co-maintainer Tobi had an idea to use benchee to run benchmarks with random data. This is an interesting idea, since you can get what is probably a more accurate picture of how your function behaves with real-world wierdness. It’s essentially the idea of using different inputs for a function, but turned up to 11. And you can do (some of) it today with benchee: http://devonestes.herokuapp.com/benchmarking-with-stream-data
