Binary and Json benchmarks updated

You can become a serverless blackbelt. Enrol in my course Learn you some Lambda best practice for great good! and learn best practices for performance, cost, security, resilience, observability and scalability. By the end of this course, you should be able to make informed decisions on which AWS service to use with Lambda and how to build highly scalable, resilient and cost efficient serverless applications.

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.

 

Binary

Only FsPickler was updated for this benchmark so there are no significant changes in performance here.

JSON

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

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

I have retired JayRock and JsonFx from the test since both are way behind the competition and haven’t updated for a while, so I consider both to be no longer of interest.

*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.
