Benchmarking Web Frameworks

by steve on April 5, 2013

If you’re building web applications, you quite possibly are using a web framework.  If you’re hoping a lot of concurrent users will be on your platform, you care about performance and scalability.

I just ran across this set of benchmarks of popular web frameworks:

Take any benchmark with a grain of salt, of course, and there’s more to a framework choice than speed.  However I do see two interesting things going on there:

  1. The java-based frameworks seem to be performing well
  2. Wow, Ruby on Rails is just about the slowest thing you can use
