I'm not clear what you care about from a performance point of view -

super-fast route-server daemon - much "better" than typical competitors
Quagga and OpenBGPd at this job. In a forwarding capacity, I do not
know and I would really think that Operating system performance and
environment tuning will have more to do with forwarding performance than
the daemon used.
+1. FIB performance and RIB performance are two very different things, and the former depends on the OS. Besides
(although I haven't checked this recently), Quagga still does not support multiple FIBs.
