Alix2d3 + squid3 + squidGuard = too slow?



  • I'm running Squid3 proxy including squidguard on an alix2d3 board (500Mhz AMD Geode w/ 256MB RAM) with an extensive block list. When I download large files with > 0,5MB/s, they get interrupted every few minutes. CPU load seems to be 100%, RAM use quite high.

    Is there any chance to optimise settings or something, or is it time to upgrade, eg. to a new apu1d?

    Thanks in advance.



  • I think you should use APU T40E the memory is 4 gb

    If Snort and other packages comes on top, this would be perhaps also to slow!

    This both can be done by yours! For sure, but a Atom C2x58 Board or appliance would be bringing then more
    benefits on top as you will explore on the first look!

    • Intel Ports
    • stronger and better CPU
    • miniITX Format
    • 1U or miniITX cases
    • AES-NI & Intel QST
    • SATA DOM usage
    • USB 3.0
    • more LAN Ports with bypass option
    • PCIe slot for another PCIe card
