Ceki has updated his numbers to include those reported on the mailing list. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1cpb5D7qnyye4W0RTlHUnXedYK98catNZytYIu5D91m0/edit#gid=0

I haven’t run the tests with Logback 1.2-SNAPSHOT but my numbers for my two MacBooks are at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1L67IhmUVvyLBWtC6iq0TMj-j0vrbKsUKWuZV0Nlqisk/edit?usp=sharing

Yes, that is still the standard approach most people use and is the only way to provide a head-to-head comparison against the logging frameworks.

This is all in a synchronous appender, right? Either way, that's rather interesting.

Someone posted numbers on the Logback user’s list that match mine.  It shows Logback 1.1.9 was pretty terrible, 1.1.10 is somewhat better and 1.2-SNAPSHOT is on par or slightly better than Log4j 2.

I think we need some comparisons on the log4j side: file appender with 256k buffer size, random access file appender with 256k buffer size (which appears to be the default), and memory mapped file appender. It'd be cool to see how these compose with async logging enabled in both log4j and logback.

You should run the code at https://github.com/ceki/logback-perf to compare your results to Ceki’s.  You also should capture the cpubenchmark speed of your processor and get the speed of your hard drive. I used Blackmagic speed test on my Mac. I am capturing my results in a Google spreadsheet. I will post the like once I have it.

If you want, I can run tests on Windows once the build works on Windows again.

Let me know what args/command line...

I guess my MacBook Pro must fit in the Slow CPU/Fast Hard drive category. With Logback 1.10 and -t 4  now get

I’ll have to try this on one my VMs at work. We don’t run anything directly on bare metal any more.

Ceki finally fixed some of the performance problems in the FileAppender. See https://logback.qos.ch/news.html and https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1cpb5D7qnyye4W0RTlHUnXedYK98catNZytYIu5D91m0/edit#gid=0. I suspect we have a few optimizations we can make.
