WRAP throughput with VPN1411 card



  • I just finished testing 2 Wrap 1E-2 boards with 128 MB RAM and Soekris VPN1411 cards
    with an IPSEC VPN with the following settings:

    Phase 1
    3DES
    SHA1
    DH 2
    PSK

    Phase 2
    ESP
    3DES
    SHA1
    PFS Off

    Here is the IPerf test:

    C:\iperf>iperf -c 192.168.4.199 -w 65536 -P5 -t 300
    –----------------------------------------------------------
    Client connecting to 192.168.4.199, TCP port 5001
    TCP window size: 64.0 KByte

    [800] local 192.168.1.199 port 2163 connected with 192.168.4.199 port 5001
    [816] local 192.168.1.199 port 2162 connected with 192.168.4.199 port 5001
    [848] local 192.168.1.199 port 2160 connected with 192.168.4.199 port 5001
    [832] local 192.168.1.199 port 2161 connected with 192.168.4.199 port 5001
    [864] local 192.168.1.199 port 2159 connected with 192.168.4.199 port 5001
    [ ID] Interval      Transfer    Bandwidth
    [864]  0.0-300.1 sec  66.6 MBytes  1.86 Mbits/sec
    [816]  0.0-300.2 sec  63.5 MBytes  1.78 Mbits/sec
    [832]  0.0-300.2 sec  71.1 MBytes  1.99 Mbits/sec
    [800]  0.0-300.3 sec  62.4 MBytes  1.74 Mbits/sec
    [848]  0.0-300.9 sec  56.8 MBytes  1.58 Mbits/sec
    [SUM]  0.0-300.9 sec  320 MBytes  8.93 Mbits/sec

    They really work nicely. They peak over 10 Mbits/sec. By taking one of the
    VPN1411's out, short bursts up to 4 Mbits/sec are possible, but try to
    sustain it for more than 10 seconds and the one with no card will reboot.
    The one with the card will be at less than 50% CPU utilization.



  • Thats really nice data to see.  Thanks for sharing!!!  Not bad at all for a 266 mhz device + vpn crypto.
