Agoo is Japanese for a type of flying fish. This gem
flies. It is a high performance HTTP server that serves
static resource at hundreds of thousands of fetches per
second. A simple hello world Ruby handler at over 100,000
requests per second on a desktop computer. That places
Agoo at about 85 times faster than Sinatra and 1000 times
faster than Rails. In both cases the latency was two
orders of magnitude lower or more. Checkout the
that the benchmarks had to use a C program called
hit the Agoo limits. Ruby benchmarks driver could not push
Agoo hard enough.
Agoo supports the Ruby rack API
which allows for the use of rack compatible gems such as
Hanami and Rails. Agoo also supports WebSockets and SSE.
