Re: The Dude IS Dead, really, isn't it?

I sent a ticket to Mtik support about some issues I had with Dude client. Here is the most important section in their reply.

We will check what we can do about it when we will get back to active Dude development, currently, it's delayed because of other priorities.

Hypervisor - Too much CPU usage?

I am wondering what is the expected CPU overhead for the Hypervisor? My ESXI host shows a CPU used % as around 67-70%. However my CHR VM in Winbox shows CPU usage of around 30%. Is it correct that the Hypervisor has around 40% overhead? That seems excessive. My HW Specs • CPU: LGA1151 socket for 7th...

Hyperthreading is off and the box came that way from BalticNetworks. However they setup the CHR to use 4 virtual cores, but the host only has 4 physical cores. Would I get better performance if I set the CHR to use 3 cores which would leave 1 core always open to the hypervisor than having the CHR us...

Re: Replaced 5yr old x86 with CHR (less than impressed)

Looking at the CPU profile in Winbox it seems the every few minutes one of the 4 core goes from 20-30% usage to 100% usage. This corresponds with a sudden increase in the routing process. Not sure the cause as there was no sudden spike in traffic.

Re: Replaced 5yr old x86 with CHR (less than impressed)

I went with the Vengeance (x86 CHR) due to my success with an x86 ROS router before. Also I went with it over the CCR1036 as I needed at least 3 sfp+ ports and I went with it over the CCR1072 due to wanting the faster BGP performance as I take 2 full tables. Now I wonder if that was a mistake.
