  • Thread-topic: Quagga on Xen - Latency / Bandwidth?

I was wondering if anyone is running Quagga on Xen? What is
throughput/latency like?

Was looking for about a gig of mixed packet size BGP throughput.
Hardware is Opteron 4 Way Quad cores, was thinking paravirt with a
couple of dedicated cores and maybe the addition of Solarflare 10GB
Direct IO NICs might give the required performance level but I am
unsure.  The other option is multi-queue Intel or Mellanox NICs and an
upgrade for Centos Kernel and Xen.
