Or maybe FreeBSD just sucks wind? I promise you
that no machine known to man can pass 150Mb/s and
be 99% idle. Get a god-damned clue for pete's
sake. All polling does is screw up accounting so
the timings are wrong. At best there's a marginal
difference in performance. You still have to
process the packets.
Lets see, this "Test" would mean that his box
could handle 100 x 150Mb/s, or 15Gb/s. Thats
quite a little router you have there! lol.
