Discussion on: Performance Comparison, Rust vs Crystal with Redis

Maybe a long running process will show a decrease in Crystal performance due to the garbage collector.

The GC is already running in the benchmark here. My guess is that Crystal actually allocates less memory than Rust for some reason (maybe the Rust client isn't well optimized).

I wrapped the Redis pipeline code to run it 10x in the same process, so it runs 4 million commands in 10 pipelines, but it didn't make any significant changes to how long it took for either app. The results are below, but to summarize: it makes the CPU-time ratio 3.13 CPU seconds for Rust vs 1 CPU second for Crystal, tipping the scales even more in Crystal's favor.
