eAccelerator is an open source PHP accelerator, optimizer, and dynamic content cache which provides a bytecode cache. eAccelerator increases the performance of PHP scripts by caching them in their compiled state, so that the overhead of compiling is almost completely eliminated. It also optimizes scripts to speed up their execution. eAccelerator typically reduces server load and increases the speed of your PHP code by 1-10 times.
