Re: CHR bandwidth test questions

We tried esx 6.7 but never could get actual throughput over 7Gb. Loopback testing was 61Gb. We are testing debian 10 with frrouting right now and are getting 38Gb throughput and around 25% load across all 20 cores. No core is loaded more than 30%.

We are working on getting our new CHR's tuned and configured. We have used the bandwidth test to the internal loopback interface with good success. We are getting different results on testing between the 2 different CHRs. Is this to be expected? We have tried disabling VMQ, offloading, upping the qu...
