Top 10 Rust Performance Projects

  • sozu

    Sōzu HTTP reverse proxy, configurable at runtime, fast and safe, built in Rust. It is awesome! Ping us on gitter to know more

    Project mention: Force all rust application traffic to pass from proxy. | | 2022-02-05

    Could sozu or rathole or leaf or exodus somehow help?

  • woodpecker

    Drill is an HTTP load testing application written in Rust (by fcsonline)

    Project mention: [Media] Introducing `pdc` a load testing library that can hit 500,000 req/sec | | 2022-04-26

  • moka

    A high performance concurrent caching library for Rust

    Project mention: Writing a concurrent LRU cache | | 2021-12-10

    Ya, I saw concache but I looked into it and it doesn't implement what is needed. Each bucket has its own linked-list backing (hence "lock-free linked list buckets"). An LRU needs each value in each bucket to be part of one linked list I believe. After posting this I realized my line of research was failing because it was state of the art five years ago. Caffeine replaced `concurrentlinkedhashmap` in the java world (by the same author). A rust version of that is Moka. These are much more complicated than a concurrent LRU but faster (aka more state of the art). Another rust crate is Stretto which is a port of dgraph's Ristretto (in go). The question becomes is it worth it to essentially port `concurrentlinkedhashmap` to have a great concurrent LRU when there are more state of the art caches out there.

  • rustc-perf

    Website for graphing performance of rustc

    Project mention: Show HN: Rust test harness that measures energy consumption | | 2022-04-05

    At the end of the day most people care about wall clock time. It's a real physical value that's easy to understand and easy to compare between systems. Plus, if two functions execute say, 1 billion instructions each, but one spends extra time stalled waiting for data fetches from RAM or doing IO, you definitely want to account for that in normal benchmarking.

    Instruction counting is more of a specialized tool but I like to use it whenever I can because it has low variance and makes comparing changes a lot easier. Compare how bumpy these graphs are for instruction count (first link) and wall clock time (second link):

  • binjs-ref

    Reference implementation for the JavaScript Binary AST format

    Project mention: Python is in the browser. No idea if this will lead to chaos or harmony... | | 2022-05-01

    There was a proposal a little while back for BinAST which gets you some of the same benefits as bytecode, but not all... mainly just reducing the parse time and maybe even allowing more pipelined evaluation. See

  • goose

    Load testing framework, inspired by Locust (by tag1consulting)

    Project mention: How to load test Drupal? | | 2021-10-06

    More sophisticated with goose

  • Panther

    A high performance python technical analysis library written in Rust and the Numpy C API. (by gregyjames)

    Project mention: Panther: A high performance Python technical analysis library written in Rust using PyO3 and rust-numpy. 9x faster than pandas alone! | | 2022-02-19
  • JetBrains

We’ll create an infographic full of stats, and you’ll get personalized results so you can compare yourself with other developers.

  • itoa

    Fast functions for printing integer primitives to an io::Write (by dtolnay)

    Project mention: Potential problem with the package manager | | 2021-12-22

    The hyper package for the crab language actually has a dependency on a package that does itoa (among others) so IMO the problem exist there too and most non trivial packages will be bloated

  • java-2-times-faster-than-c

    An inquiry into nondogmatic software development. An experiment showing double performance of the code running on JVM comparing to equivalent native C code.

  • speed-tests

    Code for comparing CDN speeds!

    Project mention: Turing Technique: Life-Changing Tip To Get Better At Chess and Chess... | | 2021-09-06

    I also have a theory on how to master first-person shooter games like Halo rapidly. However, I haven’t tested it yet. If it works I’ll write about it 😊. Subscribe if you’re interested in getting that update.
