Benchmark: Mezon Router is up to 196 times faster then Hoa Router

Hi all! Once again we shall benchmark PHP routers.

As usual we have two cases:

  1. http server accepts request, launches php script, which handles this request, and then all script data is removed from memory. All following requests are processed in the same way. In this case very critical to launch script as soon as possible and we do not have time for long pre-compilations and preparations. Because all of it will be lost after the script will finish working;
  2. php script is launching, initiating all internal components (and router is one of them) and then starting processing requests. This case can be organized via for example react-php. It differs from the previous case because we can spend reasonable time to pre-compile routes for faster processing.

But! Since now I shall

  1. use phpbench
  2. publish benchmarks in github repo

The first case

Benchmark code was a little bit changed - I have removed random part and since now we just requesting the same routes:

// static routes
$_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] = 'GET';

$router = RouteGenerator::generateHoaStaticRoutes(1000);
$dispatcher = new \Hoa\Dispatcher\Basic();
$_SERVER['argv'][1] = '/static/0';
$dispatcher->dispatch($router);

$router = RouteGenerator::generateHoaStaticRoutes(1000);
$dispatcher = new \Hoa\Dispatcher\Basic();
$_SERVER['argv'][1] = '/static/99';
$dispatcher->dispatch($router);

$router = RouteGenerator::generateHoaStaticRoutes(1000);
$dispatcher = new \Hoa\Dispatcher\Basic();
$_SERVER['argv'][1] = '/static/199';
$dispatcher->dispatch($router);
// and so on till the URL '/static/999' will be dispatched
// and so on till the URL '/static/999' will be dispatched
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
// non static routes
$_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] = 'GET';

$router = RouteGenerator::generateHoaNonStaticRoutes(1000);
$dispatcher = new \Hoa\Dispatcher\Basic();
$_SERVER['argv'][1] = '/param/0/1';
$dispatcher->dispatch($router);

$router = RouteGenerator::generateHoaNonStaticRoutes(1000);
$dispatcher = new \Hoa\Dispatcher\Basic();
$_SERVER['argv'][1] = '/param/99/1';
$dispatcher->dispatch($router);

$router = RouteGenerator::generateHoaNonStaticRoutes(1000);
$dispatcher = new \Hoa\Dispatcher\Basic();
$_SERVER['argv'][1] = '/param/199/1';
$dispatcher->dispatch($router);

// and so on till /param/999/1
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

The second case

// static routes
$router = RouteGenerator::generateHoaStaticRoutes(1000);
$dispatcher = new \Hoa\Dispatcher\Basic();
$_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] = 'GET';

$_SERVER['argv'][1] = '/static/0';
$dispatcher->dispatch($router);

$_SERVER['argv'][1] = '/static/99';
$dispatcher->dispatch($router);

$_SERVER['argv'][1] = '/static/199';
$dispatcher->dispatch($router);

// and so on till '/static/999'
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

For non static routes the code will be almost the same:

// noon static routes
$router = RouteGenerator::generateHoaNonStaticRoutes(1000);
$dispatcher = new \Hoa\Dispatcher\Basic();
$_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] = 'GET';

$_SERVER['argv'][1] = '/param/0/1';
$dispatcher->dispatch($router);

$_SERVER['argv'][1] = '/param/99/1';
$dispatcher->dispatch($router);

// and so on till '/param/999/1'
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

OK What do we have?

The first case + static routes
