Benchmarking PHP frameworks
July 08, 2008 @ 09:33:14

In response to these stats that the Avent Labs blog published on PHP framework benchmarks, Akash Mehta has made a few of his own observations about the numbers they presented.

All of these frameworks provide levels of abstraction, taking care of many common tasks and moving the logic away from the developer's application. Each framework offers a varying level of this "hand holding", and it's generally accepted that CakePHP leads the race in this area. By making more assumptions and relying on more default behaviours, Cake will always have a far greater overhead.

He makes some interesting observations - things like "CodeIgniter, on the other hand, is far more efficient in what it does - but doesn't do as much [as compared to CakePHP]" and "With eAccelerator, CodeIgniter was serving over ten times as many requests per second than Cake."

Avent Labs Blog:
PHP framework comparison benchmarks
July 02, 2008 @ 08:41:42

The Avent Labs blog has done some basic benchmarking on some of the more popular PHP frameworks out there today. The post includes the tools they used and the full results.

In response to Wil's comment regarding the PHP framework performance comparisons I made in my previous post, I have decided to post the results I got. My decision not post them initially was due to the benchmarks not being done in complete isolation (a separate client and server machine) but the scores relative to each should still be accurate and that's what I am testing for.

He used a machine with a 1.8Ghz sempron chip (running Ubuntu) to run the tests through httperf. His method involved creating the same sort of "hello world" sort of controller to gauge the framework's performance and a baseline procedural version of the same as a guide. His full results are available as a tar file and as a zip archive.
