TNSR on Hardware


  • LAYER 8 Moderator

    Hi all,

    quick question: as TNSR is supported on the SG-5100 which essentially is a C3xxx Atom - will/would it also run on the predecessor chipset family (like the old C2758 boxes XG-2758 etc.)?

    I have an appliance here for testing that is a C2558 otherwise being relatively similar to the old XG-2758 boxes (only 4 instead of 8 cores) that I'd love to test with. Would that run OK or are there more CPU requirements or things like QuickAssist too old etc. that would get in the way?

    Cheers

    It runs on c2k systems, though we have not tested it as thoroughly on that hardware.

    Some of those have a quirk where the CPU needs a nudge to run at full throttle but that's at the OS level not specific to TNSR.

    Thanks,

    then I tink I have a testcase I can run in addition to installing it in a VM to play around with :)

    @JeGr My edge device on the 10G is currently an XG-2758. Utilizing one of the igb ports for host management and the two ix ports for outside/inside.vlan.
