Free PHP Benchmark Performance Script


PHP Script Summary and Features:

This free PHP performance benchmark script is a free PHP script to calculate benchmark speeds (PHP execution times) of PHP web hosting servers. The free PHP script performs some simple mathematics and string manipulating functions repetitively (20,000 times each), and records the PHP code execution time it takes to complete the PHP functions. This benchmarking process is repeated the number of times given by the variable $iterations (in the PHP script, the default setting is 12 times) using a Javascript redirect to the PHP script again, with delays of 5 seconds each. The average time for PHP code execution is given, and also the average time after removing the highest (slowest) and lowest (fastest) completion times. It features links to restart the process again at any time, or "stop" the process (it does one more calcultion).

WARNING: It is recommended to host this benchmark script in a password-protected folder if possible; or otherwise to exclude it in robots.txt and/or rename it something more obscure.

The script is used by to compare the web server speeds of free PHP web hosting providers. The benchmark results (average PHP execution times of this script) for free PHP hosts are provided at:
