Ivan, I'm starting with the project next week. I looked trough VyOS and as good as i
I chose Linux, Slackware to be precise.
I'll replace/add some system tools:
- - iproute2
- - iptables
- - ebtables
- - ipset
I'll have custom build:
- - Linux kernel 3.14.16
- - OpenVswitch
- - bridge utils
- - keepalived
- - conntrackd
- - quagga (multiple routing tables support)
- - bird
I'm looking at removing some features from the Linux network stack, but its still too early to say.
I'll experiment also with nftables and snabbswitch.
Maybe in a month I'll have enough info for a decent presentation on the subject :)
