Benchmarking the Speed of Lite (LiteSpeed/Nginx)

A little while ago we announced our switch from Nginx to LiteSpeed Web Server. Since switching we’ve noticed a massive improvement in page load time and overall performance.

 

As promised, here is our benchmark of Nginx vs LiteSpeed Web Server.

 

Server Hardware:

2 vCPU’s – 2.6 GHz Intel Xeon E5 (Sandy Bridge)

8 GB RAM

20 GB SSD

 

Server Software:

LiteSpeed Web Server 5.2.7

Nginx 1.13.10

PHP 7.2.4

LiteSpeed Cache 2.2.3

FastCGI Cache

W3TC

ApacheBench

 

Benchmarks using ApacheBench were done locally to avoid network fluctuations. For our benchmark, we ran keep-alive since that is how users normally browse sites.
