J1900 vs J3160 4x LAN fanless



  • I am using quite happily using the Qotom J1900 4x LAN headless, but it doesn't support AES.

    Anyone have any experience with the J3610 4x LAN headless.

    Supports AES, but does it really make that much of a difference for a small home network. with a few media boxes and PCs?

    You mean the J3160?

    Are you using a VPN?

    What's your WAN speed?

    • yes - J3160
    • yes (get about 100Mg)
    • 120Mg

    You'd be unlikely to see any difference then. The J1900 is probably not pegged at 100% anywhere with that load.
    You can try running top -aSH at the command and line whilst pulling traffic over the VPN to be sure though.

    top -aSH

    If i read that correctly, the system is basically doing nothing.

    Yeah, that shows it doing nothing at all so you can;t be moving any traffic over the OpenVPN at that point. OpenVPN is single threaded so what you're looking for is if one of the idle processes goes to 0 (or very close to it). In that case it is CPU limited and something else may get you better VPN performance.
    Also if you let top run a few seconds it will show you the CPU usage by type line at the top.
