Issue #17373 has been updated by ioquatix (Samuel Williams).

Bug #17373: Ruby 3.0 is slower at Discourse bench than Ruby 2.7
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/17373#change-89528

* Author: sam.saffron (Sam Saffron)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* ruby -v: 3.0
* Backport: 2.5: UNKNOWN, 2.6: UNKNOWN, 2.7: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
We have a continuous effort to keep https://rubybench.org/ up to date. Unfortunately we have lapsed a bit on updates so I decided to run Discourse bench by hand.

On my local system I am noticing the timing are much slower on Discourse bench than they were on Ruby 2.7:

Concretely this means a typical "homepage" view is taking 47 milliseconds now, when in the past it was taking 42 or even 40 ms.

There may be some issues with the bench, you can see it here: 

https://github.com/discourse/discourse/tree/ruby-3

The script to run the bench is `ruby script/bench.rb`

I re-tested against a cleanly built Ruby 2.7 direct from the Git branch to ensure compilation was not at fault.


This is pretty concerning, Discourse bench usually tracks Rails performance pretty accurately.
