New benchmark shows that Mezon PHP Router is up to 60 times faster then Slim one

Intro

Hello all! Now we benchmarking Slim framework's router.

As usual we have two cases:

  1. http server accepts request, launches php script, wich handles this request, and then all script data uploads 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.

Benchmark principes

Here is our static routes generator

public static function generateSlimStaticRoutes(int $amount): \Slim\App
{
    $router = AppFactory::create();

    for ($i = 0; $i < $amount; $i ++) {
        $router->get('/static/' . $i, '\Mezon\Benchmark\paramCallbackPsr7');
    }

    return $router;
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And here is the generator for non-static routes

public static function generateSlimNonStaticRoutes(int $amount): \Slim\App
{
    $router = AppFactory::create();

    for ($i = 0; $i < $amount; $i ++) {
        $router->get('/param/' . $i . '/{id}', '\Mezon\Benchmark\paramCallbackPsr7');
    }

    return $router;
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Here is our test for the first case:

$_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] = 'GET';

for ($i = 0; $i < \Mezon\Benchmark\Base::$iterationsAmount; $i ++) {
    $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] = '/static/' . rand(0, 100 - 1);

    $router = \Mezon\Benchmark\RouteGenerator::generateSlimStaticRoutes(1000);

    $router->run();
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And for the second case:

$_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] = 'GET';
$router = \Mezon\Benchmark\RouteGenerator::generateSlimStaticRoutes(1000);

for ($i = 0; $i < \Mezon\Benchmark\Base::$iterationsAmount; $i ++) {
    $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] = '/static/' . rand(0, 100 - 1);
    $router->run();
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Results

Let's see the results (the bigger numbers means better)!

As you can see Mezon router is up to 60 times faster then Slim. And it is faster almost in all tests.
