ruby 1.9.2 + async_sinatra + thin thin start

ab -n 10000 -c 100 http://localhost:3000/
-> 49ms / request


node server.js

ab -n 10000 -c 100 http://localhost:3000/
-> 20ms / request
require 'sinatra/async'
class AsyncTest < Sinatra::Base
register Sinatra::Async
aget '/' do
body "hello async"
// Load the http module to create an http server.
var http = require('http');
// Configure our HTTP server to respond with Hello World to all requests.
var server = http.createServer(function (request, response) {
response.writeHead(200, {"Content-Type": "text/plain"});
response.end("Hello World\n");
// Listen on port 8000, IP defaults to
// Put a friendly message on the terminal
console.log("Server running at");

I don't think it's fair comparison because Sinatra is having more features.
So, put something on to node server.js(such as express so that it can match sinatra)
and test again.

Or you could go the other way and benchmark a straight Rack "Hello World" application.
