I have no experience of rl(4) on sparc64. But AFAIK, rl(4) is
not good/fast NIC and needs more CPU power to get full speeds.
See bugs section in rl(4).

I guess the high CPU usage comes from natd(8). Since natd(8)
is userland application it has performance penalty when it is
used on busy networks or slow machines. You would get better
results with pf(4) since all NAT operations are performed in

I need more information for the crash you seen. Please post stack
traces and make sure to use -O compilation flag to get correct
