    2 with pre fork MPM 533 faster than Apache 2 4 with event MPM 67 faster than nginx slightly faster than OpenLiteSpeed Notes The static file was 100 bytes We used such a small file to avoid saturating the network connection The benchmark simulated serving 500000 requests to 100 users Access logging was disabled for all web servers to minimize disk I O The test was performed over a 10GBps network connection to make sure network bandwidth did not become a bottleneck As the server CPU was faster than the client machine CPU the test client ab could have become a bottleneck before the server reached its peak performance We thus created an OpenVZ container on the server and assigned it 50 of one CPU allowing the server to reach 100 CPU utilization during all tests For the keep alive test all web servers are configured to a maximum 100 keep alive requests Download the raw test results http 100 log and all configurations Test Environment Server hardware specs Supermicro X9SRH 7TF Intel Xeon E5 1620 Quad Core 3 60GHz 8GB RAM CentOS 6 4 with OpenVZ kernel 2 6 32 042stab081 8 Intel X540 10GBASE T on board NIC

    mail marketing customer database CRM and e commerce Our application servers serve a lot of dynamic content PHP moderate amounts of static content and very little video We believe that performance is paramount to usability so we are prepared to invest in the best software and hardware solutions available All of our clients share the same PHP code base on a per branch basis so shared opcode caching is very beneficial for us Server Environment Dual CPU x5690 2x 6 core 3 46 GHz 96 GB RAM Load Graph Click to see the full statistics Our initial configuration was Apache DSO PHP At the end of April 2013 though we switched to Apache FCGI suEXEC for security We upgraded to PHP 5 5 and moved from APC to OPcache for our opcode caching We used generous opcode cache sizes as we like to take advantage of our servers high memory capacity We were not aware though of the insane implementation of FCGI PHP suEXEC there is no shared opcode cache This caused our committed memory to spike FCGI also spooled up processes leading to dangerously high RAM usage see graph at right Each new website added about 300MB of RAM with almost a 1GB commit As we grew with this unscalable approach we experienced a couple of crashes primarily in the form of Linux watchdog timeouts a classic out of memory event This would happen during our most critical peak times as Apache would spool up additional workers and PHP processes We did not want to leave Apache but enough was enough In August 2014 we switched to LiteSpeed suEXEC Daemon mode With suEXEC Daemon mode s shared opcode caching we immediately reduced RAM usage from 40 50GB consumption 100GB commit to 2 3GB consumption commit Our services run faster
