The following hardware configuration is recommended for a successful flexiEdge deployment and operation:
Two CPU cores minimum, if Quality of Service is enabled, 3 CPU cores are required. 64-bit CPU required, Intel or AMD.
4GB RAM minimum, 8GB recommended to be future proof.
16GB disk size minimum.
Two network interfaces are required for flexiWAN. Network adapters must be supported by DPDK and PCIe based. Check the complete list of supported DPDK adapters here.
LTE and wireless AP are supported however make sure to use hardware confirmed to work with flexiWAN.
We highly recommend using certified by flexiWAN hardware for best results.
Bare-metal installation considerations:
For embedded devices or devices with serial console, make sure to configure the console settings.
If using serial console, make sure to configure Ubuntu installer to use the serial interface instead of VGA.
VMware products supported, use vmxnet3 network interfaces for best results.
KVM and VirtualBox are supported.
virtio-net interfaces are supported.
PCI passtrough and SR-IOV are supported (through virtualization host)
Hardware and software configuration is checked after installation with the fwsystem_checker utility, to verify and fix potential software configuration issues.
