Speed benchmarking SQLite from Python

Posted on Updated on


On the SQLite homepage is a database speed comparison. There SQLite compares somewhat favorably to PostgreSQL and MySQL if you do not consider non-transactional inserts.

I have not yet gotten around to test PostgreSQL and MySQL, but I managed to get my first short SQLite benchmark written with testing from Python. As indicated on the SQLite speed comparison non-transactional inserts are expensive, and that is what I also find.
