ShopWare 5 vs Magento 2 Performance testing

Guys from Mercedes asked me to check performance of old ShopWare 5 (new version is 6 beta) vs innovated super fast Magento 2.3.2

Installing ShopWare:

wget https://releases.shopware.com/install_5.6.2_6cadc5c14bad4ea8839395461ea42dbc359e9666.zip?_ga=2.180327972.187034925.1570749702-1505405565.1570491800

For test I have used the same infrastructure and method as per my previous Magento 2 vs Magento 1 test: https://medium.com/@egorshytikov/magento-2-3-2-vs-magento-1-9-4-php-core-performance-test-b267570b8b3

According to Google Trends ShopWare was more popular in Germany than Magento.

Disabling FPC cache all another caches enabled

Why? Because:

ShopWare 5 cache configuration module can be found in Settings->Caches / Performance->Settings->Http-Cache.
