Binary and Json benchmarks updated

DISCLAIMER : as always, you should bench­mark against your pay­load and use case, the bench­mark num­bers I have pro­duced here is unlikely to be rep­re­sen­ta­tive of your use cases and nei­ther is any­body else’s bench­mark numbers.

You can use the sim­ple test har­ness I cre­ated and see these exam­ple code to bench­mark against your par­tic­u­lar payload.


Only FsPickler and Json.Net was updated for this benchmark and there are no significant changes in performance in either update.





Quite a few of the JSON serializers had been updated since the last update :

  • fastJSON
  • FsPickler
  • Jil
  • MongoDB Driver
  • NetJSON
  • Json.Net
  • ServiceStack.Text
  • System.Text.Json

Of the updates, System.Text.Json has seen the biggest change in performance, nearly halved its deserialization time.



*protobuf-net is in this list purely as a benchmark to show how the tested JSON serializers compare to one of the fastest binary serializer in .Net.

    Great, I’ll do another update in a week or two, give the others a chance to catch up ;-)

  2. That’s some through benchmark tests :-) I find the format hard to digest though, a lot of details and a lot to read. Not sure if you agree, but I personally prefer charts as a way to display benchmark results.
