The intent of this benchmark is to investigate the capability of BACRouter. Because of low baudrate of MSTP, there is not a bottleneck on routing packet to/from MSTP network.
BACRouter support 10/100M Ethernet interface, so there will be a challenge to flood it. The testing machine is a Notebook with i7 2.8G 4 cores CPU and 1000M Ethernet card, directly connected to BACRouter with CAT5+ cable. The result is:
|Path||APDU size in byte||Max routing rate without packet drop|
|Routing rate in packet flooding|
|Packet flood rate
When BACRouter is flooded by small packets, the handling capability dramatically decreased, especially in BIP port.
