ankerl::nanobench is a platform independent microbenchmarking library for C++11/14/17/20.

#define ANKERL_NANOBENCH_IMPLEMENT
#include <nanobench.h>

int main() {
    double d = 1.0;
    ankerl::nanobench::Bench().run("some double ops", [&] {
        d += 1.0 / d;
        if (d > 5.0) {
            d -= 5.0;
        }
        ankerl::nanobench::doNotOptimizeAway(d);
    });
}

The whole executable runs for ~60ms and prints

Which github renders as

ns/op op/s err% ins/op cyc/op IPC bra/op miss% total benchmark
7.52 132,948,239.79 1.1% 6.65 24.07 0.276 1.00 8.9% 0.00 some double ops

The benchmarked code takes 7.52 nanoseconds to run, so ~133 million times per seconds. Measurements fluctuate by 1.1%. On average 6.65 instructions are executed in 24.07 CPU cycles, resulting in 0.276 instructions per second. A single branch is in the code, which branch prediction missed in 8.9% of the cases. Total runtime of the benchmark with the name some double ops is 0.00, so just a few milliseconds.
