Comparison Benchmark

Periodically, a benchmark executing the first 100 example queries in Wikidata is performed on both Wikidata Query Service and Semantic Builders.

Here are the result on Sun, Mar 3, 2024 12:00 AM...

57% faster

A full Wikidata instance is up for you: less concurrent traffic, more of your queries to be crunched!

100% less errors

As Wikidata receives tons of requests and limit the execution time of queries, sometime it fails to manage all of them.
