I want to see benchmarks

I would love it if someone would post some basic performance comparisons between DotNetZip, SharpZipLib, SevenZipSharp, and the basic GZipStream. Include relevant information about platform, CPU(s), and memory usage as well. And if I were to do it, is there certain file types I should test with?

Sounds like it would be interesting.

For reference:



Just for fun, I also did some comparisons with SharpZipLib, which is an alternative zip library for .NET. SharpZipLib is pretty fast - the FastZip interface was zipping the same directory in about 35 seconds. DotNetZip without multiple threads does it in about 39 seconds. But with the multiple threads, DotNetZip's best time got down to 21 seconds. Pretty nice gain.
