Issue #14739 has been updated by ioquatix (Samuel Williams).


```
  # Without libcoro
  koyoko% ./build/bin/ruby ./fiber_benchmark.rb 10000 1000
  setup time for 10000 fibers:   0.099961
  execution time for 1000 messages:  19.505909

  # With libcoro
  koyoko% ./build/bin/ruby ./fiber_benchmark.rb 10000 1000
  setup time for 10000 fibers:   0.099268
  execution time for 1000 messages:   8.491746
```

It's almost 60% faster.

That's about what I was expecting.

Can someone else confirm? Thanks. The benefit is predominately on Linux.

Feature #14739: Improve fiber yield/resume performance

----------------------------------------
I am interested to improve Fiber yield/resume performance.

I've used this library before: http://software.schmorp.de/pkg/libcoro.html and handled millions of HTTP requests using it.

I'd suggest to use that library.

As this is used in many places in Ruby (e.g. enumerable) it could be a big performance win across the board.

Here is a nice summary of what was done for RethinkDB: https://rethinkdb.com/blog/making-coroutines-fast/

Does Ruby currently reuse stacks? This is also a big performance win if it's not being done already.
