I am wondering what's the performance of a Linux box with packet filter
compare with a layer 4 switch (eg. Arrowpoint).
Suppose I use a PIII 700Mhz machine.
I am not expect they have the same performace, but at least can it
ahieve half or something like that...... since I am wondering whethere
need to use a few thousand to buy a layer 4 switch or use a few hundred
set up a linux box.
