Description (last modified by arma)

Determine which cpu, memory, and flash disk we want to have in a router. Order some samples and test the specs with whatever image comes from #2270.

We seem to be leaning towards the model here: Buffalo WZR-HP-G300H

Questions to consider include:

  1. how much bandwidth can we realistically push with this device? 1mbps? 2mbps? 10mbps?
  2. how much cpu is needed for the openssl crypto?
  3. what happens if the device is run at 100% cpu due to crypto for hours?
  4. how much cpu does a tor bridge consume at 1mbps? 5 mbps? 10 mbps?
  5. how much ram does a tor bridge consume at 1mbps? 5 mbps? 10 mbps?
  6. if we have a management gui, how much ram does it take?
  7. do we allow remote Vidalia to connect to the tor process to get circuits and the rest of the vidalia features as a client for the transparent tor proxy?
