RFC: php5 slow on ppc

Reported by: jtktam@… Owned by: opendarwin-2006@…

Description

I have installed php5 with the following command:

port install php5 +fastcgi

on two macines.

machine A = macbook 13.3" intel core duo machine B = mac mini 1.42ghz G4

on both machines it compiles and installs fine.

on machine A, when I do this:

php -v

it takes less than 1 second to get back the version number

on machien B, when I do this:

php -v

it takes almost 12 seconds to get back the version number

I have not changed any of the port files and the installation does work on both machines, but the G4 is 12x slower (and hence i get time out errors) than the macbook.. it's getting really annoying :(

I just build php 5.1.4 from source by hand (instead of the port) and I got a better result from 'time php -v'

on my macbook, this is what the result from 'time php -v' is:

Status: newassigned

I am the maintainer of the php5 port. Although I have found the PHP CLI to start rather slowly myself, for me that means about half a second, not twelve seconds. Here is the result on my 1.5-GHz PowerBook G4:

$ time /opt/local/bin/php -v PHP 5.1.4 (cli) (built: Jun 4 2006 14:34:34) Copyright (c) 1997-2006 The PHP Group Zend Engine v2.1.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2006 Zend Technologies

real 0m0.469s user 0m0.324s sys 0m0.062s

Note the following:

  • I installed php5 +apache2 +mysql5. This means I have the CLI version of PHP (as you see above) and not the CGI or FastCGI versions.
  • Your hand-built attempt on your G4 mini, and the one you installed via DP on the MacBook, seem to have given you the CGI version instead of the CLI version which should be there. The +fastcgi variant should also install the FastCGI version as "php-fcgi" (which is different from the CGI version). I will look into the DP +fastcgi variant to see why you might have ended up with the CGI version when you should have gotten the CLI version.
  • The DP version you tested on your G4 mini is the CLI version as it should be.

Are you sure you're accessing the DP version in both tests? What's "which php" say? What if you access them explicitly as /opt/local/bin/php?

comment:6 Changed 15 years ago by jtktam@…

I am currently using Lighttpd as my webserver and I need the fastcgi version. Previously on my G3 ibook, with the same DP command 'port install php5 +fastcgi' I didn't run into this issue and that machine is way slower than this one.

Do you need me to run any commands to capture any output to solve this issue?

Yes, you can't do +fastcgi and +apache2 at the same time. That's an unrelated problem. That's bug 8599.

still the same issue either way

I also tried installing "php5 +fastcgi" and it's still fast for me.

Are you using one of the standard php.inis or have you customized it? If the latter, can you try a standard one?

Still confused about why you're getting the CGI vesion of PHP on your MacBook, and when you build by hand on the G4 mini. I don't see a way for DP to create the CGI version. Are you sure you're accessing the DP version of PHP on the MacBook?

What version of Mac OS X on the G4 mini? What version of Xcode? How much RAM? How much hard drive space free?

I can't duplicate this on my PowerBook using PHP5 5.1.6. I think this should be marked 'works for me'.
