So, after Charlies awesome work yesterday (documented here), I felt it was time I put the story straight on general JRuby performance. It's something of a mystery. I'll begin by showing you the results of lots of different benchmarks and comparison to MRI. All these benchmarks have been run on my MacBook Pro, dual 2.33Ghz cores with 2Gb memory. JRuby revision is 4578, Java is Apple 1.6 beta, and Ruby version is 1.8.6 (2007-03-13 patchlevel 0). JRuby was ran with -J-server and -O.
