Hardware Performance Impacts Between 5 --> 6 (or even 5 --> 7)

Are there any multipliers people use (or have experience with) when upgrading from 5.x to 6.x (or 5.x to 7.x)? Is it “performance counters on ver. 5” + 20%? or maybe some other percentage growth/drop?

This can vary on so many factors, that it’s hard to tell. So some have performance improvements, some don’t. With additional parsers and event types some might see a small performance drop as well. So it depends on your setup. In general, with a lot of improvements and fixes, you should see stable or even some gain.

Interesting. Thank you for the insight.
