Monkey benchmark, a really fast web server: Part I

The last months , have been a hard work time refactoring the monkey source code, almost the 80% of the source code have been rewritten and now we can see some real numbers about how the performance of our development version, future release 0.10.0 is doing : just really rocking !

I’ve done a simple benchmark using the Apache Benchmark utility on my laptop which hardware is an Intel Celeron M 1.6GHz, 750MB RAM:

ab -n 50000 -c 20 http://127.0.0.1:2001/linux.jpg

linux.jpg is a file of 202177 bytes (202KB) which is requested 50000 times using 20 concurrent request,

These are really good news, Monkey 0.9.2 handle 469.65 request per second for file linux.jpg versus the GIT version which handle 1633.96 per second, at this moment the new Monkey is almost 70% more faster and scalable than older versions. The big changes made that make possible get this excellent performance are based in the new way to handle the network connections using epoll() + threads and better memory management.

Still there’s a lot of things to do, if you will like to contribute contact us!, join us to our maling list:

Gnome Annual Report : Thanks for the printed version!

I would like to thanks to Stormy Peters and Rossana Yuen from Gnome Foundation for provide me a printed version of the Gnome Annual Report 2007 which I require to them directly some days ago: THANKS!, I appreciate so much the quick and positive response for my requirement.

As I said before, it was very surprising to me to see a picture of me in the annual report, thanks to JCI for taking that picture.

I will conserve this cool gift 😀
