    Basically the load differences between RRA and RDL on the consumer and producer is not a good way to look at it. Technically all the load to run the content and render it is done on the producer portal and the producer portal just has to display the content in either case.

    As to which one is better, it depends on what you want to do. RRA only works with roles. If you have roles already created on you producer portal and you just want to use them as is on the consumer portal then RRA is the way to go. But if you only want to use iViews or pages from the producer then you have use RDL. (or remote application integration)

    You can of course use both if you want. You don't have to use only one so use the ne that meets you need the best.

    Hope this helps,

    There is more RAI info here on SDN. This is the link to the page.

    As far as the performance measures for RDL, there really isn't a way to measure. If you understand the architecture, the RDL Iview actually is just a redirect to the producer portal. It might be helpful to review the materials around FPN in general. You can find some of the architecture here.

    Hope this is helpful.
