There's value in quantifying the effects to develop guidelines about when you're too wiped to work.

Some years back I did a project involving fatigue management for people working irregular shifts. The biggest talking point level takeaway from that project is if you pull an all-nighter from a fully rested start the next day your impairment in reaction time/ability to operate a vehicle will be at levels between a 0.05 and 0.08 BAC level. If you were short on sleep already you're likely to be at above DUI equivalent levels of impairment the entire day.

The model we used was derived from reaction times only; and I've been curious about if impacts on other types of cognitive abilities were equally impacted.

I know my quality of work on less than 3h of work is poor enough that if insomnia (or a book I can't put down) keeps me away to within 3h of my alarm going off I take the day off because I know even if caffeinated stupid in an attempt to compensate I'll end up spending most of the next day cleaning up my own messes.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
