Binary and Json benchmarks updated

It’s been a while since I last updated my binary and JSON serializer benchmarks, so here I round up the latest versions of the serializers on here.

 

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 numbers here (with the exception of the BinaryWriter!).

JSON

Quite a few of the JSON serializers have been updated:

  • FsPickler
  • Jil
  • MongoDB Driver
  • NetJson
  • Newtonsoft.Json (aka Json.Net)
  • ServiceStack.Text

Jil seems to have made the biggest gains since the last time.

*protobuf-net is in this list purely as a benchmark to show how the test JSON serializers compare to one of the fastest binary serializers (both in terms of speed and payload size)
