Generally speaking, the more secure the application is, the slower it is.
This (considering jdbdump) might be caused by:
- Slower data transfer because of the use of SSL protocol (this might
be actually quite fast if hardware SSL accelerators are used, but who
besides very big companies can afford those?)
- If all the security issues from the ,,wishlist'' were implemented,
there might be a noticable slowdown in performance tests due to encrypting of
- If we use a remote database or FTP server instead of the local filesystem
to store backups and/or configuration, it's obvious that it will take more time
to upload and download them than it would take to just save them and load them back.
