Yes, it could cause performance issues.

Yes, they do the same thing.

Speaking as someone who only uses IBConsole when forced, I don't know
how the defaults compare. I'd have to go look at them all manually.
However, there is one big difference I know of off the top of my head.
IBConsole uses the services API, where as gbak only uses the services
API if you using the -se option. The services API should be
significantly faster for large databases.
