Does anyone have any experience trying to run 1Gb/s IPSEC on a single tunnel?
We are upgrading our fibre soon from 200Mb/s to 1Gb/s for our wan connection and we need to run line rate for IPSEC over the internet to another site.
Currently running using AES-265 with SHA1, and I can get around 512Mb/s on a XEON E3110 and looking at the single thread performance numbers without factoring in the inclusion of AES instructions into the later generations XEON's I am looking at having to go with a lastest gen 3.5Ghz CPU to get 1Gb/s? Which means $$$
Any one having any luck on getting good performance on older generation stuff, or cloud core.
