i did some test and Niagara (T1000 / T5240) performs badly (response time
and rate) compared to Intel/AMD

some numbers at 75% cpu
T1000 6 cores / 24threads    ~10ms     600 queries/second
2-core AMD 1210 1.8ghz:    ~0.6ms   7000 queries/second
8-core Intel E5410 2.33ghz: ~0.6ms  70000 queries/second
