 Subject:  R: m0n0wall + net4501 keeps rebooting
 Date:  Tue, 23 Dec 2003 17:43:10 +0100
I'm using m0n0wall with net4511 and I have experienced reboot when the
transmission rate is higher that about 4000 frame per seconds. I have made
several throughput tests with an IXIA 400 in order to measure performances
according to RFC2544.

My experience affirms that no more than 3500-4000 frames (of 64 bytes) per
second can be trasmitted without experiencig a reboot. 

This happens not all the time but in about 90%.

If needed I can post the detailed results in the list.

Main results obtained are:

MONODIRECTIONAL trasmission (sis0 to sis1)
Max througput: 30,66 Mbit/s (1518 bytes frame)
Max Frame rate: 3824 frames (64 bytes frame)

BIDIRECTIONAL trasmission (sis0 -> sis1 and sis1 -> sis0)
Max througput: 14 Mbit/s (1280 bytes frame)
Max Frame rate: 1786 frames (64 bytes frame)
