I've just read Miguel's post about language performance benchmark!
Well, I have to admit I expected much better results! Although I doubt to
what extent this results are meangiful at all. I mean: for the last three
weeks we've been heavily working on performance for the upcoming plastic 2.0
release (www.plasticscm.com, in case you don't know what I'm talking about).
We're using a big number of computers (thanks to http://www.infor.uva.es/)
to stress test a single plastic server and get results out of it. We're
running the tests using PNUnit (NUnit parallel extension
pnunit.codicesoftware.com, which I'll be hopefully integrating into the next
NUnit release thanks to Charlie Poole): they basically consist on "test
agents" which simulate user actions (command line) and are almost
independent from each other. Of course they all work against the same
Well, the point is plastic is being tested running on .NET/Mono (all the
clients on mono/Linux, always) and we're improving heavy load behaviour.
Right now I can say we're much (much) faster than systems like Subversion
(we were already with only one client, but the new version will clearly
outperform it with big loads) and even wellknown commercial ones (but
unfortunately I can't reveal their names... yet). My point here is plastic
is running ON MONO, while the competitors are all implemented in C/C++. So,
yes, language performance is important, but real life results aren't always
comparable to mandelbrot plots!
