Extremely Poor Switch performance on Orion

Reported by: itadmin@… Owned by: kaloz
Priority: normal Milestone: Backfire 10.03.1
Component: kernel Version: Backfire 10.03
Keywords: Cc:


Testing the thru put across the gigabit switch with the OEM firmware WNR854T_V1.4.38NA VS Backfire 10.03 Orion. I believe this is the same SOC as WNR350n and others in this family.

Using iperf on (2) p4 gb-lan machines (client/server) thru the switch ports of WNR854T.

OEM firmware is running at 487+ mbps repeatedly @ aprx 5% cpu
Backfire with same setup is 38 mbps repeatedly @ aprx 47% cpu

No QOS or special IPT rules in use. Stock build and install of backfire 10.03 . cpu load before test 2-3%.

Same thru put wan to lan/switch was observed with (50mbit fiber)

I will test any changes you need, I have 6 of these units in operation here.

I REALLY don't want to go back to the stock firmware, but you buy a gigabit device and have it only be capable of <50% of your old 100mb device !
