Performance comparison

Mar 2, 2012 at 3:36 PM

In the Basic features you also mention Great performance but you lack comparison. Whenever one claims great performance it should compare it to something. I suggest you create a performance test project that tests speed against the following:

  • EF4
  • EF Code First
  • Dapper
  • PetaPoco
  • Massive
  • Simple.Data
  • BLToolkit - optional
  • LINQ to SQL - optional because it's deprecated
  • NHibernate
  • SubSonic
  • etc.

Performance testing, tuning and comparison are on our to-do list. Usually the bottleneck in an application is not the performance of the ORM itself but the poor SQL that is generated by it (abstractions on top of SQL such as LINQ is a bad idea since it creates horrible SQL for select queries).
