Measurements are very useful to gauge the actual performance of various architectures and their components. In this paper, the authors investigate the performance of the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP) architecture and MySQL and PHP components. They build a web-site using LAMP and measure the application level performance. They use \"Measurements as a means\" to improve the performance of the website. They then investigate the performance of the application when ported to Windows with running IIS and Apache with MySQL and PHP.
