I just replace my Linktechs Powerrouter V3 (https://www.streakwave.com/itemdesc.asp?ic=PRV3
) bought in 2014 with the Vengeance as the Powerrouter has major interface issues after the upgrade to ROS 6.x from 5.x and the mfg says these routers are not supported above 5.x. Basically the sfp interfaces would sometimes just stop passing data and the only fix was to reboot the router. Very bad as this is my border router for our ISP.
Well with the PowerRouter I would max out at around 40% CPU usage which was pushing around 1.4Gbps of traffic. This was an 4 core router (3.4ghz older I-7 running hyperthreading so ROS saw it as an 8 core).
With the Vengeance running the exact same config I seem to have higher CPU usage at lower traffic levels. Is this because of the lack of hyperthreading on the CHR router or something else? When I did an internal UDP Btest to 127.0.0.1 on the CHR prior to deployment it maxed out at 27Gbps so I know it can push some data.
