BEEN is a generic tool for automated benchmarking in a heterogeneous distributed environment.

BEEN automates all steps of a benchmark experiment from software building and deployment through measurement and load monitoring to evaluation of results. The notable features include separation of the measurement from the evaluation and an ability to adaptively scale the benchmark experiment based on the evaluation. BEEN has been designed to facilitate automated detection of performance changes during software development (regression benchmarking).

BEEN is developed as a student's software project for Distributed Systems Research Group at Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the Charles University in Prague (Czech Republic).
