The EOSIO technical whitepaper states that the architecture "may ultimately scale to millions of transactions per second." While we are currently a long way from that level, we will continually strive toward making improvements that will push that goal ever closer. To that end, today we’re very excited to announce our EOS Block Producer Benchmarks tool.
This tool charts the CPU execution time from a custom dApp that was written specifically for the purpose of benchmarking. Our aim is for it to be as objective and accurate as possible across block producers. We expect this will be a valuable tool for BPs to see and potentially improve their performance. Additionally, we urge block producers to share any newfound best practices for increasing performance in an effort to improve the overall network.
The data, methods, and strategy for this project are brought to you by EOS Mechanics, a collaborative research initiative dedicated to the continuous improvement of the EOS network infrastructure. We seek to accomplish this through cutting-edge experimentation and objective measurement of block producers’ performance.

Aloha EOS firmly believes that the future of EOS is brighter than ever. As we watch the maturation of the overall EOS ecosystem with excitement and anticipation, we’ll continue to focus on producing high-quality tools such as this benchmark, that provide benefit to block producers and ultimately the EOS community at large. If you appreciate what we’re doing, we would welcome a vote cast in our direction (alohoaeosprod) for block production.
Until next time, mahalo!
