throughput/latency like?

Was looking for about a gig of mixed packet size BGP throughput.

Presumably you mean internet traffic. [...]

Here's some recent thread on lkml about linux 10 gbit routing performance:

"We also achieved nearly 80 Gbps in bidirectional TCP tests (40 Gbps
simultaneously in each direction):"

But that was on baremetal.

For a real-world internet connection, that kind of throughput is irrelevantly large. The more interesting question is how many PPS you can handle.

The good news for Robert is that 80gbps at 1500B/packet is over 7mpps, which is way more than you need for 1gbps at 64B/packet (about 2mpps). So apparently recent kernels have made gigantic advances here.
