PHP 5.5 vs HHVM vs Node.js Benchmark part 4

May 11th, 2014 No comments

In this set of benchmarks I am comparing the performance of node vs hhvm in doing what a lot of web apps do: Adding something to a database and reading something from a database and then making a webpage out of.

In the previous part hhvm was pretty slow doing bubble sort this was due code not being inside a function. THe key take away is always using functions when using hhvm especially for time consuming code.

PHP 5.5 vs HHVM vs Node.js Benchmark part 2

In the first set of benchmarks I did I focused on recursive calls. In this second benchmark I focused on arrays. While scoured the web for various benchmarks I came across this one (http://jaxbot.me/articles/benchmarks_nodejs_vs_go_vs_php_3_14_2013 which shows that php is not very good at bubble sort. Bubble sort is a slow O(n^2) algorithm. The version I used is pretty much the worst way you can write it. It has to make n*n comparisons in total.

I wanted to run a benchmark of HHVM against php 5.5. I also threw in Node.js since it is pretty fast. I was really surprised by the results.

Check out part 2 and part 3 of the benchmark:

I put together a simple C# application to easily check a bunch of ip addresses to see if they are spam. Simply enter the ip addresses on the left pane and you will get a pass of fail on the right side. Make sure you have one ip per line on the left column,

If you are trying to use iATKOS ML iso under virtual box make sure you use sata controller. It took me forever to figure it out because each website said try changing this boot option or that boot option.

Chrome Pepper Flash Crash using a Webcam

My webcam app would always crash and I had no idea why. Don’t use 640×480 for webcam capture or any other popular size. Use 641×479 or some other random number. It seems to be fixed in chrome 23. I wish chrome would give some crash logs to help.
