Is that C3 a Nehemia-Core? If so this one has the Padlock-Feature which means that it does a
kickass-performance on ipsec: http://www.via.com.tw/en/initiatives/padlock/hardware.jsp (look at the
bottom of the page for the comparison on encryption between C3 and P4 ;-)
I don't know if m0n0 supports padlock though, maybe someone who knows the m0n0 more "inside" can
tell you.

You can optimize IPSEC-Performance by using a faster encryption-method too. I have two C3 Nehemia at
home and might do some testing this evening to tell you what the throughput is with a freebsd 5.4RC
platform that does use padlock.

Don't forget, that the other end of the tunnel has to do encryption too, so it is not only an issue
of the encryption speed of the mainlocation.

How many tunnels can a VIA C3 900MHz handle?

I have 1 main location and want to set up tunnels to connect 3 remote
locations - could a 900MHz processor handle this? Each location has
intermittent traffic, with a peak of 200kbps.
