CPU consumption by Horizon?

Fri Feb 15, 2019 8:03 pm


I will bridge more 10G SFP+ Ports with Horizon to 1 Uplink SFP+
I have seen, that when i add an Port to the Bridge, then it's auto HW offload (OK). But when i add Horizon to this Port, HW offload Flag will remove.

How mutch is it with Horizon more CPU consumtion?

Any other Way, when it is so, that i save CPU load?
The CRS should be usable with 10GBit/s.... and the user ports should only see the uplink-port - without 100% CPU load :-) (no VLAN, ect...).

sorry i cant answer, but i do have this same question.

will the use of horizon on a bridge port, cause HW-offload to become disabled?

(another way to ask this- is the bridge port -> horizon feature available in SWos?)

Horizon will disable hardware offload according to wiki.
