Over 8 Times Faster Than Wordpress

5/3/2016

We've known for a long time that Typesetter is fast. It's something we take pride in, so we make performance stats readily available. Anyone with a Typesetter installation can see memory usage and page load times in the admin toolbar under the "Performance" section.

These performance stats only show part of the picture though. They're just snapshots of what happens for one user during a single page request. But what happens when 100 people try visiting a site at the same time? How quickly can the server respond to 100,000 requests? Fortunately, the folks over Apache have already thought about this and created the Apache Bench Utility.

The Tests

Using the Apache Bench utility, I recorded the amount of time required to complete a variety of tests. Each test configuration was run independently on an installation of Typesetter and, to put the results in perspective, an installation of Wordpress, which is the most common CMS in use today. Each CMS was freshly installed without any modification or optimizations to the code or content.

Tests ranged in number of requests (from 100 - 100,000) and number of concurrent requests (1 - 100). For example, the following commands were used to get benchmarks for 10,000 requests with 10 concurrent requests:

> ab -n 10000 -c 10 http://localhost/Wordpress/
> ab -n 10000 -c 10 http://localhost/Typesetter/

The Result

As you can see in the table below, Typesetter outperformed Wordpress in every configuration of the test we tried. The best Wordpress faired was over 8 times slower than Typesetter and got as bad as nearly 12 times slower.

Requests Concurrent Requests Wordpress Typesetter Comparison
100 1 1.321s 0.152s 8.7x Faster
1,000 10 5.370s 0.573s 9.4x Faster
10,000 10 54.824s 5.254s 10.4x Faster
10,000 100 56.286s 4.766s 11.8x Faster
100,000 100 590.142s 54.526s 10.8x Faster

Let's look at these results in another way. In less than the amount of time it took Wordpress to serve 100 requests, Typesetter was able to serve 1,000. While Wordpress was busy handling 1,000 requests, Typesetter finished 10,000.

In the amount of time it likely took you to read this post, Typesetter can handle 100,000 requests. In order for Wordpress to serve those same 100,000 requests, you'd probably have to read this post 10 times. That's 9 times too many.

Typesetter 5.0

3/16/2016

Typesetter 5.0 is now available for download!

Our newest release raises the bar again to a whole new level of editing ease. The hallmark of our CMS, the True WYSIWYG interface, was redesigned and made even better to create a consistent and intuitive editing experience.

5.0 isn't just for content creators. With designers in mind, and in preparation for the release of Bootstrap 4, we integrated an SCSS compiler along side the existing LESS compiler. Users can now easily use either of the two most popular CSS extension languages out of the box.

Take Typesetter 5.0 for spin today
