What I meant was that the total performance of my framework, measured in
messages passed per second, was around 5 times slower when using Boost.
Serialization, than when using a similar serialization framework that I
>From the profiling I did I'm pretty sure that the performance problems had to do
with the construction/destruction of the archive classes, and probably had
nothing to do with the actual serialization.
The tests I ran were remote method invocations over a loopback TCP connection,
to a thread in the same process. Each invocation involves creating 4 archive
objects (passing args in and out on both client and server ends), and with
Boost.Serialization I couldn't get beyond 1000 invocations/sec, while getting
almost 5000 when using my own serialization framework.
