    How can I implement AES-NI?

      So I see from the release notes for 5.2.8 that AES-NI is now available.


      (This is an instruction set from Intel that provides for faster crypto functions from the CPU.)


      I have a bunch of questions about this:

      Can I switch my 5.2.x clients from AES (FIPS) to AES-NI?

      Is there a down-side to doing this?

      What's the performance impact of switching?

      How would I do this in EEM?

      Are there other questions I should be asking?
