CorePlus HW clock requirement

Post by LeifNielsen » 04 May 2009, 08:59

Hi,

I was wondering if rules exits for the software version of the CorePlus that allows you to relate bandwidth to clock frequency on a Standard Pentium 4 processor PCs. I know it's a complex question dependent on bus speeds etc, but I guess You must have some general rules - especially when you build hardware for your marvolous bandwidth records.

I was thinking of two general rules for required clock speeds:
1/ Plain text throughput from a single WAN to a single LAN interface
2/ L2TP IPSEC throughput pr .tunnel

If a mathematical estimate formula exists I would like to hear about it and if similar formulas exists for the memory requirement, please also include those.

Thanks in advance
Leif

Hi Leif,

I'm sorry, but we don't have any mathematical rule to calculate performance.

The performance has to many dependency's to bus speeds, memory, network nic's, CPU speed and type etc. for a mathematical rule to work, we do our performance tests with IXIA traffic generators on the different hardware platforms to ensure that performance is according to specifications.

To give a value without knowing all affecting factors would be very risky.

Best Regards,

Henrik
