last year I made some test with Vyos 1.1 and I found it very interesting and now I am ready to change my actual configuration.
I use actually OpenWrt 18.06 (as my internal router) on a ESXi virtual machine (based on Supermicro Atom C2758, 8 cores, 16GB RAM): I would like to migrate to vyos and I need some (basic) info and advices.
First, I would like to cotinue using ESXi virtual machine but I would also like to have a configuration that you use QAT (to maximize VPN performance for Wireguard/OpenVPN) but I don’t know if QAT is supported on a virtual machine (and for my CPU specs): do you have some info?
Second question relates to how to build a tailored vyos for my hardware (on virtual or on bare metal): after reading the documentation, to build the ISO I need also to build the packages I need (or all to simplify) and include them in final build: it’s correct?
Thanks in advance
