So, I got 2 of these units...DEC850's.
I can't get more then ~2.75Gb/s on the 10G interfaces using iperf3, even with multiple streams (tested up to 8). CPU sits about 35-40% during iperf3 testing, temps on the cores about 113f.
Latest opnsense OS loaded on them, pass rules/no filtering.
Not really, cost isn't the issue - just like the small form factor and low power draw. We typically use rack mounted servers for firewalls, the fanless stuff is intriguing to me for CPE type stuff or even DC stuff that we don't need a full server. One of these I think pulls 60W at 100% load.
Just curious if anyone knows of any small systems like Protectli or QOTOM make, but with 2x10G interfaces on them?
I see OPNSense folks released one - DEC800 Series – OPNsense® Desktop Security Appliances – OPNsense® Shop but I can't find that anywhere else in the market, not sure...
Yea, they have a web interface that manages everything for the most part. Check the Proxmox site, they have some demo's on mgmt. You'll still need to do some deeper stuff from the CLI and knowing basic Linux would be helpful.
