            Bug ID: 258013
           Summary: [REQUEST] Please make net/mpd5 part of the base system
           Product: Base System
           Version: Unspecified
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Many People
          Priority: ---
         Component: bin
          Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: ohartmann@walstatt.org

Port net/mpd5's pkg-descr states: "...  Mpd is a netgraph(4) based
implementation of the multi-link PPP protocol for FreeBSD".

Base's /usr/sbin/ppp has several disadvantages. On a PCengine APU2C4 (~ 1 GHz
AMD GX-412TC, 1 GHz quad Jaguar core) /usr/sbin/ppp, operating in userland and
acting as the pppoe connection to a vDSL modem connecting to a DSL 100 ISP's
line, ppp is barely mainatining 50 MBit/s utilizing 35% - 45% of the CPUs,
while mpd5 can  easily provide with 100% of the subscribed bandwith on the same
line while utilizing less than 5% CPU.

OPNsense is also utilizing net/mpd5 as the primary tool for pppoe connections
and I believe pfSense is the same.

So I'd like to suggest to make the port net/mpd5 part of the base system.

Kind regards and thanks,
