better multiple pppoe server or one pppoe server?

Sun Jan 18, 2015 6:55 pm

Hi all.
I transport pppoe connections to a pppoe server using eoip tunnels.
Eoip terminates in the same machine having pppoe servers.

Is better to bridge all eoip to one pppoe server or terminate each eoip to one diferent pppoe server in a CCR multicore?

Thanks

Rodolfo

Hey Guys!

Sorry for restart that post.

I have the same situation but with multiple VLANs terminating on a unique CCR (PPPOE server). Can I use multiple PPPoE servers for each VLAN without any major issue?

Yes, you can either bridge them all then set a PPPoE server on top of that bridge, or create one PPPoE server for each VLAN.

From a 6.8 Presentation:
Changes introduced in v6.8:
- kernel drivers for PPP, PPPoE, PPTP, L2TP now are lock-less on transmit & receive
- all ppp packets (except discovery packets) now can be handled by multiple cores
That leads me to believe in a multi-core scenario it shouldn't make a difference if creating a single pppoe server or many, in terms of load spread amongst all CPU cores.
