.NET ORM Benchmark

This project is a BenchmarkDotNet-based benchmark. We used it to test the performance of the following Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) libraries for .NET Framework 4.6.1 and higher:

The benchmark project uses EF Core 2.2.4 by default. Upgrade the NuGet package to v3.0.0-preview5, if required.

You can run these benchmarks or review our test results below. Needless to say, the lower the execution time the better.

All benchmarks were executed using .NET 4.7.2, AnyCPU release builds (include warm-up), Windows 10 Enterprise x64, local Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Developer Edition, i7-7700 CPU @3.6GHz / 16GB RAM / SSD.

If you download the project to run benchmark tests in your environment, edit the connection string in the App.config file and update the ORM library and target framework versions, if necessary. Please note that we used Nuget to add DevExpress.Xpo and other libraries to project references.

We kept the first version of this test as simple as possible. Feel free to make data model and test case modifications to cover additional usage scenarios. For instance, measure memory consumption, include scenarios with BLOBs, reference and collection properties, etc. We'd love to hear your feedback about this project. Drop us a line in this blog post, thanks.
