    Network routing issues

    Hi! Don't use the "rt_table" solution, its an old "linux hackish-way" to implement the VRF (Virtual Route Forwarding) technology.

    Vyos 10GbE Router

    Hi! Can you measure the "pps: packets per second" instead of "bps: bits per second" ? Measuring the "bps" is misleading and wrong like "Oranges vs Apples".
