What are the settings for best performance for go-ethereum and parity clients?

5 days ago

I want to run a full node and would like to know the best settings

does it make sense to run both clients for best certainty (I need to detect customers' deposits) or is it enough just to run geth?

Is it advisable to enable --jitvm? are there any drawbacks to running with --syncmode "fast"? how much cache should I assign on a machine with 16 or 8 gb ram? What other tweaks are possible/recommended?

What's the best method to check the health status of the client?
