By now our company testing possible VyOS implementation as network load balancer, and by now in our sandbox based on rolling release of VyOS. As we expect quite high-bandwidth, we are trying to maximize system performance and tune system up. Firstly, our configuration was based on dual-port Intel X520 network card, and we haven’t expected any issues with that. But we haven’t stop with that, and want to compare it to Solarflare SFN7122F performance, as it stands for one of the best TCP offload capable Linux-optimized NICs. Rolling release of VyOS just doesn’t want to work with this NIC, our attempts to compile in integrate Solarflare’s Debian driver was unsuccessful, system don’t want to recognize our card.
Maybe someone expected same kind of issue, and solved it, could you share your experience?
Does VyOS 1.2. Stable Release have necessary driver for SFN7122F?
Thanks in advance,
