I would like to run some kind of a benchmark in order to find out the exact difference in performance between the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Syncthing.
Until now, I have always preferred to use the 32-bit version simply to reduce the RAM usage, but I have no actual hard data to prove that there is any significant difference in this regard. I would also like to know how much of a performance gain there is regarding CPU operations like hashing, etc.
Could anyone recommend a simple method to do this kind of benchmarks? I know that Syncthing logs the hashing performance on each start, so I can use that for some basic comparison, and also check compare the RAM usage of each version using the OS tools. Is there anything else that I could compare?
