Benefits to using map or feature service layer in Operations Dashboard

Are there any benefits (performance, quality of display or any other) to having map service layers in operations dashboard vs having feature service layers?


In my case, the dashboard will be used to display live data coming in from a geoevent service updated to a feature services. The operations dashboard will be used to check for updates to the layer (map or feature, depending on what I decide to use) every 6 seconds.


Is there any difference if the layers in the operations dashboard were map or feature layers?


I'm looking for opinions but any documentation to support will also be appreciated.


Kindly share your thoughts.
