# Squid purge benchmarks

When pages are saved, the prior version of the page has to be purged from the squids. Additionally, other pages may have to be purged to reflect changes in the link state on creation or deletion. Since this is done *during* the save period, it adds to the perceived slowness of the wiki if it takes a long time when editing.

## MethodologyEdit

Each run purges a bunch of randomly generated titles (unlikely to be real hits), givings times as an average of four runs for SquidUpdate::purge(). For double confirmation I ran the script twice iin each configuration.

## New benchmarksEdit

After recent changes by Tim and Gabriel to reduce the amount of waiting on input. The function can now return sooner.

NOTE: The results here are a bit odd, and may reflect the already-open sockets not behaving correctly on multiple trials.

There are 7 defined squid servers: 1 titles in 92.56ms ( 92.56ms each) 10 titles in 1.85ms ( 0.19ms each) 100 titles in 119.59ms ( 1.20ms each)

There are 7 defined squid servers: 1 titles in 92.22ms ( 92.22ms each) 10 titles in 1.59ms ( 0.16ms each) 100 titles in 120.62ms ( 1.21ms each)

## New benchmarks (single invocation)Edit

For these trials the script has been modified to do a single trial (rather than 4 averaged as in the old benchmarks), and each count-of-titles trial set is done from a separate script invokation.

## Old benchmarksEdit

Purging squids ~~is~~was kind of slow. Page saves and some other operations required waiting for purges requests to be sent out to a bunch of squids. This adds to the perceived slowness of the wikis.

Script execution done on zwinger, at a fairly non-peak time (shortly before Thu Jan 20 06:54:28 UTC 2005)
