Today I installed eAccelerator on one of my servers. It's a cPanel server with Zend Optimizer already installed (required for Zend Encoded scripts).
Before I installed the eAccelerator extension I ran a PHP benchmark script:
Before the installation I had an average result of 54ms.
After the installation I had an average result of 72ms.
That's when I was confused... So I removed the extension end ran the test again, and yep: 54ms again. Made me think: isn't eAccelerator supposed to speed up my scripts by caching opcode?
Does anyone have any good or bad experience with eAccelerator? Or maybe I'm not using the right benchmarking script?
I'm running PHP 5.2.1 with Zend Engine v2.2.0, Zend Extension Manager v1.2.0 and Zend Optimizer v3.2.4, and I installed eAccelerator 0.9.5.
