Publishing queue messages from PHP using different backends
Mar 26, 2012 @ 11:31:53

Artur Ejsmont has a new post sharing some benchmarks he put together about the "messages per second" and "time to execute" when using PHP to pull from various messaging backends.

I have looked at the state of different messaging backends recently and i ran a little benchmark to see what is the rough comparison of message publishing throughput. Results that i got are quite surprising. What i wanted to achieve is some sort of reassurance before choosing a messaging bus for my PHP project.

Running both the PHP and the messaging test scripts on the same server, he pulled from a few different backend systems - RabbitMQ, MySQL, MongoDb, Memcached and ActiveMQ. The results were interesting, showing an interesting result in the time it took to execute versus the number of messages per second pushed in.
