Leveraging our experience with Node.js performance, Fastify has been built from the ground up to be as fast as possible.

All the code used for our benchmarks is available on GitHub.

Here's a brief summary on how Fastify overhead performed against the some other well known Node.js web frameworks:

22052 req/sec


19590 req/sec


5269 req/sec


18151 req/sec


13590 req/sec


Please note that this is a synthetic, "hello world" benchmark that aims to evaluate the framework overhead. The overhead that each framework has on your application depends on your application, you should always benchmark if performance matters to you.
