Hello all,

I see Kerio make version of Winroute for 64bit Os.
My question is: KWF 64bit will be faster than the 32bit version?
Because it take some time to display webpage from KWR to Client PC, at this point It's totaly normal, but the 64bit version in theory will display the same requested web page in much less time right?

Thanks in advance!

No, there's no reason for the 64-bit version to be faster then the 32-bit... it might even be slower!

  • There is no 64-bit computing being performed in KWF, so that doesn't help...
  • The extra memory address space is of no use to KWF, since it doesn't need or use a lot of RAM...
  • Possible it's even slower that the 32-bit version since the binaries for a 64-bit program are somewhat larger then of a 32-bit program (due to larger memory addresses being used and thus taking up more memory space and bandwidth), although this is probably negligible...
  • Developers are now starting to embrace 64-bit computing, but may not really be accustomed to it yet. Thus, 64-bit applications may not be optimized very much or may be so 'spanking new' that some bugs have not yet been ironed out.

The only programs benefiting from 64-bit computing are programs that use many Gb's of RAM (say databases) and (obviously) programs that excessively use 64-bit computing (as in 64-bit floats or integers, thus mostly scientific computing).

Somehow people seem to think that since 64 is 32 times 2, programs suddenly will run at double speed. That's not what 64-bit computing is about at all...

It's good that 64-bit computing is here. Some systems really benefit a lot and in a few years time even 'normal' systems/programs are going to be bothered by the 4Gb memory barrier, but until then I'd be careful about what to migrate to 64-bit platforms...
