FreeBSD network forwarding performance benchmark results

This repository includes bench scripts (need netmap pkt-gen and nanobsd like), bench configuration files, raw results and gnuplot graphs on few setups. Bench script documentation is available too.

Hardware benched are:

  • HP ProLiant DL360p Gen8 (8 cores Intel Xeon E5-2650 @ 2.60GHz) and 10-Gigabit Chelsio T540-CR
  • IBM System x3550 M3 (4 cores Intel Xeon L5630 2.13GHz, hyper-threading disabled) and dual port Intel 82599EB 10-Gigabit
  • SuperMicro SuperServer 5018A-FTN4 (8 cores Atom C2758) and 10-Gigabit Chelsio T540-CR
  • Netgate RCC-VE 4860 (4 cores Intel Atom C2558E) and quad port Intel i350 (the 2 Intel i211 are not benched)
  • PC Engines APU1D (2 cores AMD G-T40E 1 GHz) and 3 Realtek RTL8111E Gigabit NIC
  • PC Engines APU2C4 (4 cores AMD GX-412TC) and 4 Intel i210AT Gigabit NIC

Some results:


  • ipfw/pf's impact on forwarding performance with differents hardware
  • IPSec performance on FreeBSD 11.0 with differents hardware
  • OpenVPN 2.40 performance on FreeBSD 11.0 with differents hardware
