However, there were several reports of performance impact due to the kernel mitigation- for example on the PostgresQL developers mailing list there was reports of up to 23% throughput loss; Red Hat engineers report a regression range of 1-20%, but setting OLTP systems as the worse type of workload. As it will be highly dependent on the hardware and workload, I decided of doing some test myself for the …
