It seems that one of my customer would like to have some kind of a network appliance in front of its windows server (good idea!), and I have some strange animals^W^Whardware lying around, I decided to do some performance testing. Following will be used:
- Gateway 7001 AP – Intel XScale IXP422-based AP with 2 ethernet ports and 1 miniPCI.
- Atmel NGW100 – AVR32-based development board with 2 ethernet ports
- PeeCee with various hardware – “pick your favourite mobo brand and build some crap”
Testing will include NAT, some IPsec with various crypto engines measured with iperf, and also some power consumption measurement if I can get a good meter.
Results will be posted here, so check back later.
