Benchmark kit is a tool to add a framework or a template engine benchmark on



You will need Docker ^18.06 to make it work.


Everything you need to use benchmark kit is is

Install it as global bin and give it execute mode:

sudo wget -O /usr/local/bin/phpbenchkit
sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/phpbenchkit

Then call phpbenchkit, it will add vhosts and run Docker benchmatk kit container:

# Add vhosts if needed, run Docker container and call bin/console to show available commands

# Restart Docker container
phpbenchkit --restart

# Stop Docker container
phpbenchkit --stop

# Update docker image and phpbenchkit command
phpbenchkit --selfupdate

Benchmark kit commands

List available commands:


Almost all commands accept this option:

  • --skip-source-code-urls: don't validate source code urls, usefull while you are in development.

#1 Ask us to create repositories

You can ask us to create repositories with contact form.

Tell us which component and version you want to benchmark, and your github username to allow you to commit on this repositories.

We will send you an email when repositories will be created.

#2 Initialize code

To make your benchmark work you will need some files into .phpbenchmarks directory:

  • Configuration.php: configuration of benchmarked component.
  • called before the benchmark to initialize everything (composer install, cache warmup etc).
  • vhost.conf: nginx virtual host configuration.
  • responseBody/: benchmark url body will be compared to files in this directory to validate it's content.
  • composer/composer.lock.phpX.Y: created by phpbenchkit composer:update to install dependencies by PHP version.

All this files can be created and configured with configure commands.

See list of configure commands with phpbenchkit configure:.

You can call phpbenchkit configure:benchmark to create all of them or use the one your need.

phpbenchkit composer:update
# you can specify a version of php
phpbenchkit composer:update 7.1

You can validate each part of your configuration with validate.

See list of validation commands with with phpbenchkit validate:.

#4 Add required feaures for benchmarks

Choose the component type and benchmark type you want to code:

Note that all component benchmarks needs to bo validated to make your component appear on

#5 Test and validate your code

Docker container provide a domain to test your code: http://benchmark-kit.loc.

To change PHP version (CLI and FPM):


When you think it's ok, use phpbenchkit validate:benchmark to validate it.

#6 Submit your code

When phpbenchkit validate:benchmark say it's good, push your code, then you can tell us to launch benchmarks with contact form.

Thank you!
