The recommendation of most users is to do a cold install.

Check if all of your hardware is supported by 11.31!

Hope this helps!

if you mean duration of installation probably it depends on your system.
you can check this a bit similar issue to yours:

We have used update-ux to update five systems from Dec. 2007 11.23 to March 2010 11.31. The update-ux step itself took about 2 hours for each system. We had no issues with it.

Three are rx3600 and two are rx6600. We used update-ux instead of cold install since four of the systems were using Serviceguard.

Of course, we spent a lot of time before the actual update day reading the manual and preparing for the process.

Creating a DRD clone and/or Ignite archive or tape will add time before the update and checking logs and doing other patches or customization will add time after the update.
