On his ThisLab blog, Fred Wu has posted some quick benchmarks comparing some of the popular frameworks out there - Ruby on Rails/Passenger versus CodeIgniter/Kohana.
Last few days I have been playing with Ruby and Rails, again. Today, when someone was asking on a forum about the efficiency of web frameworks, I thought I'd give the few frameworks I work with some more benchmark testing.
His benchmarking is based on basic "Hello World" page requests for each of the frameworks. His results were interesting with CodeIgniter coming out with the fewest number of requests responded to (per second) and Rails coming out on top by a margin of about eighty or ninety over CodeIgniter/Kohana.
