The goal of this benchmark is to compare several web server or caching server regarding their respective ability and performance to server small static files. The servers are optimized, contrary to my previous benchmark, where each server was tested using its default settings. I consider in this benchmark only the most performant open source servers, namely Varnish Cache, Nginx, Lighttpd, Apache Traffic Server as well as G-WAN (free, but not open source), as it was the clear winner of the previous test.
Update 1 (Mar 16, 2011): Apache MPM-Event benchmark added Update 2 (Mar 16, 2011): Second run of Varnish benchmark added Update 3 (Mar 16, 2011): Cherokee benchmark added Update 4 (Mar 25, 2011): New benchmark with the optimized settings is available
Here is a simple script I’m using to convert wma music files to mp3:
current_directory=$( pwd )
for i in *.wma; do mv "$i" `echo $i | tr ' ' '_'`; done
for i in *.[Ww][Mm][Aa]; do mv "$i" `echo $i | tr '[A-Z]' '[a-z]'`; done
#Rip with Mplayer / encode with LAME
for i in *.wma ; do mplayer -vo null -vc dummy -af resample=44100 -ao pcm:waveheader $i && lame -m s audiodump.wav -o $i; done
#convert file names
for i in *.wma; do mv "$i" "`basename "$i" .wma`.mp3"; done
Zoie is a mature open source project and has been deployed in a real-time large-scale consumer website: LinkedIn.com handling millions of searches as well as hundreds of thousands of updates daily.
All Zoie releases have gone through extensive functional and performance testing by LinkedIn before made public. All major versions are released after a trial period on the production environment.
In a real-time search/indexing system, a document is made available as soon as it is added to the index. This functionality is especially important to time-sensitive information such as news, job openings, tweets etc.
