The performance impact on disk throughput should not be significant,
as journald still throttles and caches the log messages before
flushing them to disk and still forwards them to rsyslog as it did
before. The performance impact depends on the workload, and there is a
reduction of runtime memory used as well, which helps with throughput
by increasing available io cache buffers.
