After updating Pentaho PDI 4.3 to 5.0.1, I noticed that my ETL process took 45 minutes longer to execute. So I ask myself if the new version is really slower than the old one ..
I compared the two kettle versions with the same transformation (a single Table Input to Ouput a Table). Same database, same table, same driver, same everything except PDI release (4.3 and 5.0.1).
Here is the result:
|Rows/Sec||Total Sec||Rows/Sec||Total Sec|
Yes, Pentaho Kettle 5.0.1 is slower than 4.3. Sad but true, but this is not a deal breaker considering the new features that come with it.
