Yii 2 Benchmark Application is an application built to demonstrate the minimal overhead introduced by the Yii framework. The application contains a single page which only renders the "hello world" string.

The application attempts to simulate the scenario in which you can achieve the best performance when using Yii. It does so by assuming that both of the main application configuration and the page content are cached in memory, and the application enables pretty URLs.


  protected/          contains application source code
      controllers/    contains Web controller classes
  index.php           the entry script


The minimum requirement by Yii is that your Web server supports PHP 5.4.0.


If you do not have Composer, you may download it from http://getcomposer.org/ or run the following command on Linux/Unix/MacOS:

curl -s http://getcomposer.org/installer | php
mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer

You can then install the Bootstrap Application using the following command:

composer global require "fxp/composer-asset-plugin:~1.1.0"
composer create-project --prefer-dist yiisoft/yii2-app-benchmark yii-benchmark

Now you should be able to access the benchmark page using the URL


In the above, we assume yii-benchmark is directly under the document root of your Web server.

Note that in order to install some dependencies you must have PHP with OpenSSL support.
