Just like the previous benchmark this one measures out of the box performance of the above 3 frameworks. I ran each benchmark 3 times, the mean of those benchmarks was then derived.
Environment: Linux Mint 4.0 (Ubuntu 7.10) Apache 2.2.4 PHP 5.2.3 eAccelerator 0.9.5.2 Framework versions: Cake 188.8.131.5296 RC2 CodeIgniter 1.6.3 Kohana 2.2.0 Apache Bench: ab -c 5 -n 1000
Static HTML file served by Apache resulted in 13528 RPS and 11397 RPS with eAccelerator enabled.
Here is the graph:
There are good news and bad news :) The bad news is that Cake’s developers have managed to make it even slower and by quite a bit. Cake’s performance has decreased by 89% under eAccelerator and by 29% without it. The good news is that Kohana’s developers have managed to improve their framework’s performance, by about 9%, under eAccelerator (and perhaps other caching engines as well). It was suggested that such improvement was achieved through Kohana’s new path caching.
