Hi All , Thank you for participating and helping the community. I want to tell you about my situation.
We have a x3550 7978 equipped with Xeon E5450 and 32gb ram. We install vyos 1.1.8 in esxi 5.5. Our network is made up of 3 bgp interfaces with our suppliers and another one for our clients.
we are experiencing packet loss on the interface to our clients. We have reviewed conntrack, flow control, even smp affinity. The most important thing is that we observe a very high CPU consumption on the client interface.
But my question is: this hardware can handle this amount of traffic with these characteristics?
What other parameters should I observe?
Thank you again
