Raspberry Pi as web server benchmarking + taking requests!

Raspberry Pi as web server benchmarking + taking requests!

edited July 2012 in General

Got my Pi the other day and have been doing some quick benchmarks using Apachebench, serving up a PHP Hello World page using different servers: * Apache * nginx+php5-fpm (via TCP/IP) * Lighttpd+php5-cgi

Just the numbers: * Apache - 165.75 requests/s * nginx - 151.76 requests/s * lighttpd - 180.77 requests/s

If you have something you want me to test on the Pi, just post in this thread!

  • Some other stuff that I have tried:

    • samba with external NTFS drive: Works great, speeds up to 10MB/s.
    • SABnzbd usenet downloader: Works fine, load gets pretty high though.
    • ZNC IRC Bouncer: Works great!

    Is there a way to test a wordpress installation?

    Twitter Bootstrap Themes for your software projects. I recommend Prometeus and Catalyst Host

  • Totally unrelated to the web server part, how good is the Pi at streaming videos? (lets say I want to buy it and attach it to my TV so I can stream hulu or whatnot)

    Catalyst Host - Pie Approved!

    Hulu? Forget. Http streams? Excellent

  • I have severe lags while streaming 1080p content via Windows home network with openELEC. Seems to be a software related problem. 720p and DVD resolution works fine.

    Flash does not run on ARM (unless Android).

    Wordpress works fine with mysql (--skip-innodb)

    Is there any particular thing in WP you want benchmarked? Using WP Super Cache with aggressive settings (all pages cached) you can expect about the same amount of requests/s as the Hello World example.

    Edit: Memory usage for the Debian wheezy is: Cold boot: ~20MB with web server: ~30-50MB with web server+mysql: ~80MB

    Flash also runs on this thing.

    Selling multiple 2000-user GApps :) Shoot me a message to make an offer.

  • Someone brought a PlayBook?

    Cheapest I saw was for $150cdn for the 16gb.. not sure how much it is now

  • pcanpcan Member

    A quick update straight from the Raspberry official web site: purchase limitations have been removed. Raspberry Pi is now on the main RS-components web site and can be purchased in any quantity by commercial companies.

    The official Raspbian image has ben released; Raspbian is a Debian Wheezy fork optimized for the Raspberry Pi hardware. The download link is not on the main Raspberry web site yet, but the torrent link has been published yesterday in the forum/raspbian section of the Rasperry pi official web site. I am testing this new image now; it is a lot more stable and mature than the first Debian image. Also very easy to setup.

    If I have been running the previously posted Wheezy beta, will I have to do a clean format or can I just apt-get upgrade to get the new release?

  • pcanpcan Member

    @littleguy: A clean format is mandatory. I quote from the Raspberry forum:

    You will continue to get firmware updates etc through apt-get update && apt-get upgrade but if you want to make the jump to hardfloat you'll need to write a new SD card image.
