Blocking vs. logging throughput

If I have a security policy applied to all my zones which includes profiles for everything (AV, spyware, vulnerability protection, etc.) but the actions are all just logging or alerting and not blocking, would that affect my throughput?  I was wondering if I could run all of these services and still get the box's max throughput if I'm not blocking anything, or if these will still impact throughput capacity and they should be disabled in zones where they're not needed.
