Microbenchmarking Method Calling: Peachpie crushes PHP by using Call Sites

Posted on April 13, 2016, in category Benchmark, tags: , , , , , , , ,

We have previously microbenchmarked the computation of Pi in PHP 5.6 and 7 versus Peachpie, as well as its predecessor Phalanger. With the progress we made in Peachpie, we are now able to measure how quickly it calls instance methods compared to regular PHP. This article summarizes the results of this benchmark.

Peachpie’s Debut: Running PHP in .NET

Posted on March 29, 2016, in category Announcement, Benchmark, Tutorial, tags: , , , , ,

Last week we taught Peachpie to compute simple arithmetic operations and demonstrated this ability on the Leibniz formula for Pi. We published a first microbenchmark, where we compared how quickly the irrational number was calculated with Peachpie compared to PHP 5.6 and 7, as well as with Phalanger. The results for this particular benchmark were […]
