Benchmark of the most commonly used http routers.

Tested routers:

This benchmarks aims to test only http routers, so the method handling should be included.
Do you know other routers? PR! :D


These benchmarks where taken under node v8.9.0, on a MacBook Pro Retina Late 2013 (i7, 16GB of RAM).

Run the benchmarks

Do you wan to run the benchmarks by yourself?
Run the following:

git clone
cd router-benchmark
npm i
npm start

How the benchmark is taken

To emulate a real world situation every router registers the following routes:

{ method: 'GET', url: '/user' },
{ method: 'GET', url: '/user/comments' },
{ method: 'GET', url: '/user/avatar' },
{ method: 'GET', url: '/user/lookup/username/:username' },
{ method: 'GET', url: '/user/lookup/email/:address' },
{ method: 'GET', url: '/event/:id' },
{ method: 'GET', url: '/event/:id/comments' },
{ method: 'POST', url: '/event/:id/comment' },
{ method: 'GET', url: '/map/:location/events' },
{ method: 'GET', url: '/status' },
{ method: 'GET', url: '/very/deeply/nested/route/hello/there' },
{ method: 'GET', url: '/static/*' }

Then the following routes are tested:

short static: { method: 'GET', url: '/user' }
static with same radix: { method: 'GET', url: '/user/comments' }
dynamic route: { method: 'GET', url: '/user/lookup/username/john' }
mixed static dynamic: { method: 'GET', url: '/event/abcd1234/comments' },
long static: { method: 'GET', url: '/very/deeply/nested/route/hello/there' },
wildcard: { method: 'GET', url: '/static/index.html' }
all together: all the above at the same time

Every test is executed 1 million times, the time is taken with process.hrtime(), the final result is expressed in operations per second.
