Framework Benchmarks

TechEmpower

Framework Benchmarks. How much does your framework choice affect performance? Authors Note: Were using the word "framework" loosely to refer to platforms, micro-frameworks, and full-stack frameworks. Plain Go delivers the best showing for a non-JVM framework.

Framework Benchmarks Round 16

TechEmpower

Now in its fifth year, the TechEmpower Framework Benchmarks project has another official round of results available. See [link] pic.twitter.com/Od1nuq0UQV — TechEmpower Framework Benchmarks (@TFBenchmarks) May 17, 2018.

Frameworks Round 1

TechEmpower

You are viewing the first round of web application framework benchmarks. Check out the new stand-alone framework benchmarks site if you are interested in the latest and most accurate data. How much does your framework choice affect performance? Why don''t you test framework X?"

Framework Benchmarks Round 15

TechEmpower

And the perfect start is selecting high-performance platforms and frameworks. Results from Round 15 of the Web Framework Benchmarks project are now available! What better day than Valentine's Day to renew one's vow to create high-performance web applications?

Frameworks Round 6

TechEmpower

July marks the fourth month of our ongoing project measuring the performance of web application frameworks and platforms. By popular demand, Round 6 introduces a plaintext test that uses HTTP pipelining, implemented in 14 frameworks so far.

Framework Benchmarks Round 7

TechEmpower

Happy Halloween fans of web development frameworks! After a several-month hiatus, Round 7 of our project measuring the performance of web application frameworks and platforms is available! Round 7 includes many new framework test implementations contributed by the community.

Framework Benchmarks Round 17

TechEmpower

We're happy to announce that Round 17 of the TechEmpower Framework Benchmarks project is now available. Since the adoption of Continuous Benchmarking , the creation of an official Round is a fairly simple process: Try to reduce errors in framework implementations. We want an official Round to have a solid showing by as many frameworks as feasible given limited personnel bandwidth. Write a blog entry and post the Round. Round 17 is now measuring 179 frameworks.

Performance competition is a good thing

TechEmpower

If you've not been watching the ASP.NET team's community standups , you have missed some surprisingly transparent, interesting, and oftentimes funny updates from a major web application framework development team. As Ben Adams writes in his article detailing the achievement , that is 23 times better than prior to the start of optimization work within the framework! We started the Framework Benchmarks project to collect data about performance. We love this!

It also takes only an hour to develop your own using a rapid development framework like CakePHP. It integrates with OptinMonster, allows you to craft beautiful emails, and more importantly, enables you to create automated workflows without writing a single line of code.

Think about Performance Before Building a Web Application

TechEmpower

But for the rest of us, those of us lucky/unlucky enough to know we need high-performance, or are uncertain whether performance is a concern, and for whom I write the remainder of this article, performance should be on our minds early. Framework Benchmarks. “It was running fine.”

One million HTTP RPS without load balancing is easy

TechEmpower

As we and our collaborators prepare Round 9 of our Framework Benchmarks project, we had an epiphany: With high-performance software, a single modern server processes over 1 million HTTP requests per second. 40 threads and 256 connections Thread Stats Avg Stdev Max +/- Stdev Latency 247.05us 3.52ms 624.37ms 99.90% Req/Sec 27.89k 6.24k 50.22k 71.15% 31173283 requests in 29.99s, 3.83GB read Socket errors: connect 0, read 0, write 0, timeout 9 Requests/sec: 1039305.27

I plan to write a series of posts on the topic. Equally, I plan to write for the benefit of investors and independents, too, to offer some tips on how can you get the most out of the boards on which you sit.

Mangling JSON numbers

TechEmpower

Any server-side web framework or HTTP server will do. The front-end framework will do it, $.getJSON We should write an alternative to JSON.stringify that produces an exact representation of our number.” We can no longer write Mustache or Handlebars templates like this: {{! We can no longer write functions like this: function updateEmailAddress(user, newEmail) { // Oops, we failed for user #2^62!

Everything about Java 8

TechEmpower

At the time of this writing, Java 8 development is still very much in progress. It is essentially another way of writing Collections.newSetFromMap(new ConcurrentHashMap ()). It performs better than RRWL when used as a plain read-write lock. Is also provides an API for "optimistic reads", where you obtain a weak, cheap version of a read lock, do the read operation, then check afterwards if your lock was invalidated by a write.

EnumSet and EnumMap

TechEmpower

If you write a lot of Java code, then you should read that book and follow its advice. We're all using enum types here and there, we're all using the collections framework. The iterable.spliterator() method is critical when it comes to stream performance, but writing a custom Spliterator from scratch is a non-trivial task. Write a benchmark afterwards to confirm your assumptions. This article discusses java.util.EnumSet. and java.util.EnumMap.

Pragmatism with Flavor

TechEmpower

But a newly minted developer given access to Hacker News can develop ADD in a week's time, waste countless hours reading the opinions of professional and amateur technology opinion-makers, and nervously fidget about selecting the hippest framework and libraries to (briefly) avoid the scorn of hacker pop culture. You're in the thick of it and about to write a small chunk of server-side code. but getting work done requires shutting down the news feed and writing code.

Both Sides of the Table

In more than a decade of writing about the Internet and tech-enabled businesses I’ve learned that mobs don’t do nuance well. My goal is to lay out a basic framework for anybody unsure whom to listen to as a way of helping you think about a way to orient your own views.

Down the Stack | How Low Do You Go?

Tech Zulu Event

I’m largely talking about whether to use an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) or a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and to some extent, how much to rely on Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) providers or write your own application components. You’re a startup. You’ve got a great idea for an app.
