Does anyone have metrics on the performance consequences of enabling Filevault on a MacOS FM server14 installation?

Our University IT is now requiring MacOS users to encrypt all storage devices.


What I found on the FM boards is the recommendation NOT to enable Filevault due to the performance hit, but no indication of the severity of the effect. The recommendation is indistinguishable from being part of a laundry list of generic recommendations to improve performance (get a fast drive, enough RAM etc).


Any experiences to help guide me here?
