New PHP router wich is 24 to 42 times fatser then Yii2 router

Intro

Hello people! This article is a new one in a series of my benchmarking experiments. And today we shall find out what's the difference in performance of Yii2 router and mezon/router.

Like in the previous articles we shall test static routes and routes with parameters in them.

But before it we have to define the most primitive controller:

<?php
namespace console\controllers;

use yii\web\Controller;

// minimum possible functionality
class BenchmarkController extends Controller
{

    public function actionStatic(): string
    {
        return 'static';
    }

    public function actionParam(): string
    {
        return 'param';
    }
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Then we need to configure route with parameter:

// somewere in main.php
'components' => [
    // other staff here

    // and our setup
    'urlManager' => [
        'enablePrettyUrl' => true,
        'showScriptName' => false,
        'rules' => [
            // our route with parameter
            'benchmark/<id:\d>' => 'benchmark/param'
        ],
    ]
]
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Static routes will be benchmarked in this way:

<?php
// it's is normal Yii mess, don't panic )))
defined('YII_DEBUG') or define('YII_DEBUG', false);
defined('YII_ENV') or define('YII_ENV', 'production');

require __DIR__ . '/../vendor/autoload.php';
require __DIR__ . '/../vendor/yiisoft/yii2/Yii.php';
require __DIR__ . '/../common/config/bootstrap.php';
require __DIR__ . '/config/bootstrap.php';

$config = yii\helpers\ArrayHelper::merge(require __DIR__ . '/../common/config/main.php', require __DIR__ . '/../common/config/main-local.php', require __DIR__ . '/config/main.php', require __DIR__ . '/config/main-local.php');

$app = new yii\web\Application($config);

// here we try to launch our console script as it was called in web
$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] = '/yii2/yii2-app-advanced/console/test.php/benchmark/static';
$_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] = 'GET';
$_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] = '/benchmark/static';
$_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'] = '/yii2/yii2-app-advanced/console/test.php';

// and here our benchmark itself
$iterationsCount = 10000;
$start = microtime(true);
for ($i = 0; $i < $iterationsCount; $i ++) {
    $request = new yii\web\Request();
    $app->handleRequest($request);
}
print($iterationsCount / (microtime(true) - $start));
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And routes with parameters will be benchmarked like this:

// some variations from the previous benchmark
$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] = '/yii2/yii2-app-advanced/console/test.php/benchmark/1';
$_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] = '/benchmark/1';
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

The loop in wich we run $app->handleRequest($request) will be the same.

In this table you can see amount of dispatched routes per second. So this means that the bigger number means better. And for an all purpose framework the result is not bad. But mezon/router is faster )))

As you can see - mezon/touter is from 24 to 43 times faster than Yii2 router.

What is mezon/router?

mezon/router now is:

  • framework for routing with 100% code coverage
  • 10.0 points at scrutinizer-ci.com
  • router is a part of the Mezon Project

It will be great if you will contribute something to this project. Documentation, sharing the project in your social media, bug fixing, refactoring, or even submitting issue with question or feature request. Thanks anyway )

Hello,
Quite interesting numbers. Did you extracted the routing modules from the non-mezon frameworks also? Do you plan to put mezon into an actual fully functional framework and test against real-world usage also?
There will be more test, against like POP, CI, Lumen or Slim?

Do you plan to add real stress-test or ioncannon test to prove it is actually safer and really faster?

Yes, you can see another benchmarks in my previous articles.

I do.

Put it in my content plan
