The LHCb upgrade trigger represents a new paradigm in high energy physics: A fully software trigger operating at the LHC bunch crossing frequency with a triggerless readout. The existing level-0 hardware trigger in Run 2 has allowed us to test much of the upgrade strategy at 1MHz. In this talk, we will describe the performance of the Run 2 trigger in pp and special data taking configurations, and the implications for the deployment of the upgrade trigger at 30MHz.
