|Implementation||Connection Time (mean)||Latency (mean)||Messages||Connections||Connection Timeouts|
In the realm of high concurrency and availability, Erlang still rules supreme.
There are a couple of observations that I want to make:
- Although Cowboy's average Connection Time is second worst and eight times Snap's average, practically speaking most users won't even notice the difference as the former still takes less than a second. When it comes to performance, perceived responsiveness matters more than raw numbers. There's a big difference between comparing 100ms to 800ms and 1s to 8s.
