I’m going to build a system capable of 10gbit (40gbit ingress+egress on 2 interfaces) routing with full sized packets (not in a single connection), a simple nat router with about 30-50 filter rules and just 2-3 interfaces.
Which CPU should I look for that will give me the most? while not going on something overkill.
many core CPU? AMD? Intel?
whats more important in terms of throughput? the instructions the CPU supports? the CPU clock?
Is there some sort of benchmark with variety of cpu’s that I can compare and decide that on my own?
If thats somehow matters, the NIC is Solarflare SFN5122F.
There’s no ram/cpu/mobo yet, and thats why I’m asking here what to look for first
After seeing this I’d guess that even AMD FX-8300 should handle as 10Gbit routing?!
I’d really appreciate your help!
