Deprecated Garbage Collections – Kenny Lee Chee Wei

Cherokee. Faster than Apache / Lighttpd ?

with 5 comments

Seems so, based on their benchmark.

But then again, it’s their own benchmark.

Some seemingly neutral ones:

– Cherokee Vs Lighttpd from riklaunim

– Cherokee Vs Nginx from riklaunim

  1. I’ll have to take a look at Cherokee. I’m an Nginx fan for sure. It gives excellent performance and configuration is simplicity itself. But I’m happy to swing from server to server as performance improves and stability is proven elsewhere.

    Swing from server to server… Does that make me a server monkey of some kind?

  2. I’m thinking of taking a look at Cherokee for my own server. Apache2 just eats up far too much RAM hosting less than 20 websites, all with low traffic. Mind you, I think my main problem is that those sites are a mix of PHP, mono, and django.

  3. TrustLeap G-WAN is 4x faster than Cherokee:

    15x faster than Apache
    3.5x faster than Rock (webspec’s 2008/2009 winner)
    4x faster than Microsoft IIS 7.0 and ASP.NET.
    400x faster than PHP, 200x faster than Python

  4. A few months ago, I switched to Hiawatha. Once you’ve tried that one, you never want another webserver. Very secure and easy to configure.

  5. G-WAN (120 KB) is faster than all -without any configuration file and has *never* exposed any vulnerability:

    And G-WAN brings ANSI C scripts while other Web servers don’t provide native scripting capabilities (they need an external module like Java, PHP, etc.).

    Think about how to offer server scripts in 120 KB -whatever the language.
