Here are some links to benchmarks I downloaded from Smarty and ran on my FreeBSD server. NOTE: these are just static pages, showing the results of the benchmarks I ran (they're not re-running the benchmarks in real-time). I do not have an accelerator like php-accelerator installed on this server, it's the most recent 1.3.x Apache and the newest version of PHP (as of 06/10/2002) running as a module. The server isn't currently online (I use it for development), therefore, the only thing it was doing at the time was running these benchmarks! Here are the server statistics:
