Doh! Turns out that my first Umbraco 4.1 benchmarks was done on a build of 4.1 that had a couple of bugs in it :( BUT, this turns out to be even better for 4.1 that I previously thought! (plus there’s bugs fixed now :) If you didn’t read the last post, i recommend that you do as it has some insight as to how these stats came to be.

So, without further adieu, here’s the (true) new results:

Test Stats 4.0.3 4.0.3

So to recap, here’s the total average savings in 4.1

  • Without client cache (First run)
    • Number of completed requests: 30% Less
    • Response bandwidth: 31% Less
  • With client cache
    • Number of completed requests: 6% Less
    • Response bandwidth: 78% Less
