Performance Comparison For Rails and Merb
September 2, 2007
Merb is another MVC framework written in Ruby by Ezra Zygmuntowicz. Phil Misiowiec did some peformance comparsion for Rails and Merb when deploying with Mongrel, Swiftify and Nginx. You could look at full article at http://www.webficient.com/2007/08/testing-various-configurations-of-rails.html
For making it visually interesting, I created a simple Flex Chart based on those results. I kind of interpolated the same data in 2 different perspectives:
You could clearly see that Merb perfomed better than Rails but it is more evident when used with Evented Mongrel and less with simple Mongrel deployment. Also it showing storing sessions in MemCache is better than ActiveRecord store.
**** Note that I am not responsible for these results and full credit should go to Phil Misiowiec and I just try to represent the data visually here (while trying to play with Flex Charting) ******
