Why is Benchmarking WordPress so Hard?

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

As promised, we’re going to be giving the hosting industry a tool for doing a proper “benchmark” as a means of evaluating your own WordPress capabilities in a standardized way. I’m going to start this post with a few definitions, since there has been a lot of misuse of the words and language in best practices.

Based on the results of the Hello World Benchmark Test, we now know that LiteSpeed and OpenLiteSpeed have the smallest IPC overhead and provides the best performance for PHP 7 and HHVM of the web servers tested.

litespeed-driving-http2

At LiteSpeed Technologies we are always striving to incorporate the newest and best cutting-edge technologies into our family of web servers. This of course extends to the new HTTP/2 network protocol standard (published May 2015). We are proud to have been ahead of the curve in this by providing HTTP/2 support as early as January 23rd for OpenLiteSpeed and April 17th for our Enterprise edition. Apache does not yet have a production quality HTTP/2 module while NGINX’s HTTP/2 support will not be available in 2015.
