We present techniques and a tool for automatic generation of benchmark programs. Generated programs have adjustable parameters defining the program length, relative frequencies of individual control structures, and other properties. A sequence of benchmrak programs can be used for compiler performance measurement and for other performance evaluation tasks. We present a technique for recursive generation of synthetic benchmarks, and first experiences with this tool.
