I just wanted to post here a performance testimonial by Scott Coldwell. Just a reminder of all the improvements and tuning we did for our 3.5 core:
All tests were with SingletonReload = false. “with caching” means that eventCaching and handlerCaching were enabled, and handlersIndexAutoReload was disabled.
Apache Bench (ab) was utilized for the test. http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/programs/ab.html
Some fun UNscientific stats:
Values in milliseconds
./ab -n 500 -c 10 http://aa.amp.local/
./ab -n 50 -c 2 http://aa.amp.local/?fwreinit=1
