Intro

Hello everybody! It is time to benchmark another well known router - Laravel router (to be precise - Illuminate\Routing).

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

Static routes we shall benchmark in this way:

// repeat this in loop
with(new Illuminate\Routing\RoutingServiceProvider($app))->register();
$app['router']->get('/static', function () {
    return 'static';
});
$request = Illuminate\Http\Request::createFromGlobals();
$app['router']->dispatch($request);
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And routes with parameters will be benchmarked like this:

with(new Illuminate\Routing\RoutingServiceProvider($app))->register();
$app['router']->get('/{id}', function () {
    return 'param';
});
$request = Illuminate\Http\Request::createFromGlobals();
$app['router']->dispatch($request);
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Results are quite astonishing (the bigger numbers you see, the better it is)!

This is nice, but how many apps will really need that speed? In my experience, good portion of apps will never ever go beyond 600 req/sec

It is usefull to have opportunity to execute 20K req/sec.

By the way 600 req/sec is not too much nowdays.

And thanks for your comment )
