So, we're looking at building out our Splunk infrastructure. We can choose between Intel 8 Core 2.7 Ghz Xeons (20 MB cache) or AMD 16 core Opeteron 2.5Ghz (16 MB cache).
The Intel box supports hyperthreading, has a larger cache and is slightly faster in terms of Ghz. Does Splunk see any difference between threads and cores?
Has anyone tested these two processors against each other and found one to be better than the other?
As per Splunk Engineering Department, there is no difference, if I where you I'll go with AMD
