I was reading through codeigniter documentation and they have a dedicated benchmarking class.

What is benchmarking used for in general ?
I searched the google but could not find examples of where and how benchmarking is used.

thanks

after this explanation - a re- read of the benchmarking class makes sense.
good to have one more tool at disposal :)
