Analysis of AMD EPYC™ and 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors-based servers.
Which PHP handler/web server has better performance?
What is the comparative performance of mod_lsapi vs. PHP-FPM?
Which processor is a better choice today?
To answer all these questions and to provide comprehensive results, we’ve organized in-depth server web hosting tests. It was a joint effort with Estonia-based DIAWAY, who provided the test servers as well as their analysis of the costs and PDU-level power consumption.
Our goal was to benchmark select server configurations with popular core counts, fitting within a certain price range, recreating a shared hosting environment. We have simulated typical numbers of processed PHP requests per second to identify the most optimal configurations.
We also wanted to see how single-socket AMD-based servers fare vs. common dual-processor platforms. It took us several weeks to test an array of select HW/SW combinations, with different PHP versions, web servers, and CPUs.
