 That is also a problem for me, as I would like to try different array

 I agree. What I need is something that:

  - time the running of a test case (that is already there, if the right
 logging is enabled, although the output is messy)
  - can distinguish between fixture setup time and time to run the test
  - can be set to count the number of times that a test must be run before
 a specified period elapses
  - give an indication of whether the test takes a linear amount of time
 with respect to the test parameter (eg, the length of the array)
