Vyatta 5600

Hi,

 

I want to build a test environment, one server running 4 VR(Vyatta 5650),NIC: 4*10G, the server hardware requirements(CUP/Memeory). Whether to have the Hardware Recommendation Guidelines about 5600?

 

About Intel DPDK, on the CPU requirements?

 

 

Best Regards.

Hi Li,

You will probably be fine with any "decent" Intel server. The memory minimums are 1 Gb for the Root Partition and 2 Gb for the Installation. Not saying this as a recommendation however it is known to run on the Dell PowerEdge R620 for example. I am not sure about DPDK however I haven't heard of any specific requirements. I hope the above helps.

DPDK is supported starting 55xx Xeon families. But E5 v2 or even v3 have DPDK more developed.

As 5600 is not ready yet IMHO wait for FCS version.
