Hi guy ,

Run process

Zend : Request -> Zend will compile -> run code on buffer -> response .

Phalcon : Request -> run code on buffer (Phalcon compiled) -> response

Why ? : Because Phalcon has compiled and ready to use .

C-extensions are loaded together with PHP one time on the web server’s daemon start process Classes and functions provided by the extension are ready to use for any application The code is compiled and isn’t interpreted because is already compiled to a specific platform and processor Thanks to its low-level architecture and optimizations Phalcon provides the lowest overhead for MVC-based applications
