Re: Not getting wireline speeds

Despite doing forwarding by CPU if you configure Fast-Track (without HW L3 offload because this device does not supports it) you can achieve almost 1gbit of routing+NAT+some essential firewall filter rules

I think maybe you can hit the limit of the interface between CPU and Switch chip of 1.3gbps

i think knowing any vendor product line is not always an easy task, most the time if you want to be proficient and sucesful on product selection you cannot rely only on product name, you must dive in datasheets brochures etc, i think its part of the job having said that, I don't think product naming...

Re: Max Power Different: CRS326-24G-2S+RM vs. CRS326-24G-2S+IN

some speculation from my part:

maybe because IN version came to the market several months (if not years) after RM, it was validated/tested with a more recent hardware revision, resulting in slinghtly lower power consumption

place your bets :D

Re: Interesting DDoS case

my point is, can be easier to detect your few ip's under attack and block all the ddos traffic using that few parameters

than

detecting all the fake source addresses of ddos traffic to block that traffic

off course it also depends of each situation

Re: Interesting DDoS case

junk packets to be discarded as fast as possible with minimal CPU overhead
I think, it is cheaper to catch the bad guys the first time and drop it later on raw chain, don't you?
in a ddos attack source ip addresses are fake you are not catching nothing useful
