Awesome, thanks for your (and whoever contributed) efforts…
(Regarding the Multi-WAN situation)
Well, a few comments on the low-end system.
It seems to handle pfSense...Just barely.
Sometimes I get the box killing a process due to "lack of swap space"
(The WebGUI would load halfway through something and stop...
But if you refresh, its OK again).
So yes, I think you need 64MB.
(pfSense system status screen says about 70% RAM used when under
load, and 59% when idle).
48MB RAM is possible, but I don't recommend it.
I guess I need to hunt for some old EDO or PC66 SDRAM modules.
(Maybe get a PowerLeap CPU upgrade adaptor to bring this old box
up to a 400Mhz K6-2 setup?)
I used the low-end box on a 10Mbit Cable, and it seems fine, as I'm
getting full speed...Not sure of two 10Mbit lines though...Time will tell.
A bit of a side question...
The chipset the mobo has is an Intel 430VX. This does not
allow for more than 64MB RAM to be cacheable. Its total capacity is 128MB RAM.
Would this affect pfSense performance if it were to reside in the non-cacheable
area of memory?
I'm asking this as I'm not sure how BSD works under this scenario.
(I know Windows would load into the upper regions when the RAM is non-cacheable
and this would cause performance issues).
My other box would be to use an EPIA PD10000…Which would be more
than enough grunt for what I want to use a multi-wan firewall solution for.
