There are 40+ Web frameworks and 30+ Web server implementations on CPAN, but so far only 5 are benchmarked in the popular TechEmpower Framework Benchmarks. I set out to add many more. Does mod_perl2 still have competitive juice in it? Can you dance() your way to low latency? How bad is CGI.pm on mod_cgi really? Do Mojo::Server::* modules have less overhead than Plack::Handler::*? What's the realistic upper limit for database access in simple Perl Web applications? Does it pay off to deploy on a stand-alone Web server such as nginx?

Let's find out, preliminary results in August.
