Hallo Chris,

I access the WebUI via https, because of all the CPU issues of FBSD
5.x I now downgraded to 1.2b3 again and immediately noticed how
"snappy" the WebUI is in 1.2b3 and how slow in 1.2b6, even on the
internal net where bandwidth really is no problem. The CPU graph in
1.2b6 also shows spikes to 100% when working with the WebUI.

I have a hard time understanding, why I have about double the CPU load
between 1.2b3 and 1.2b5, functionality is almost identical.

Since this major switch was made during 1.2 development, would it make
sense to return to 4.10 until 1.2 is stable? This way users would have
more choices and the meantime could be utilized to explore other
options (not necessarily FBSD 5.x).

Please note that this is no rant or criticism, I am very pleased with

Kind regards   Frederick
