Hi Peter,

Thanks for the feedback.

To clarify, was that 50% performance decrease with --enable-profiling
compiled in but with profiling disabled in suricata.yaml?

Or is there some performance decrease with --enable-profiling compiled
in and then some additional performance decrease when then enabling it
in suricata.yaml?

I assume your Suricata PPA compiles WITHOUT --enable-profiling?
