Hello,
Instead of writing a do file why don't write an ado file and make it
available through ssc?

I know that information such as operation system and the Stata version can
be obtained automatically from within Stata, I'm not sure is Stata is able
to automatically find out what is the processor and the clock speed, but
both can be manually inputed by the user. The final output would be a report
with the computer performance. 

I believe we could have an option which would automatically tranfer the
report results to a particular site, which would in turn make it public
available.

I know that R users were discussing the establishment of a similar package
for benchmarking.

All the very best,
Joao Pedro

Hi all,


I'm new to Stata and such discussion are key when investing either in
software and hardware (the last is more frequent).

Twio tracks in order to optimize performance
- Investing into Hardware (users)
- Optimizing software (.do versus core code?? Stata)

I'm not aware what have been done for each track investigation.. For the
first, a common .do file is needed
- simulating data (manipulating 1000, 10000, & 1000000 and variables 10,
100, 1000)
- Statiscal analysis
	- simple regression
	- a ML estimation (Multinomial logit/Probit)
	- a HM case (complex GLLAMM)
- Extract the 3 delay for each analysis
For each hardware configuration (Processor/OS/Memory/HD), stata users can
return back the 3 results. (One can choose the number of
varaibles/Observations upon needs)

Best regards
Naji Nassar
