  1. Now, on day 10, after the node was started the Nanopi Neo3 reached a continous traffic of 80 Mbits. Its still doing fine and it is not overwhelmed at all! I think it could handle even more but i have some limits on the ISP site. Thanks a lot Werner for the tip. These devices are like made for this job . An update on, how the R1 will do, will follow.
  2. Yes, it seems I will have to But this will take some time till I am ready.. What I can say for sure about the NanoPi Neo3 so far, is, that it does a good job in the datacenter. Ramping up the traffic may not be complete after 7 days, but at this point, it handles 50 MBits traffic in both directions easy. CPU temp. is with a small fan and some aluminium heatsinks+ full AC in the colo room at 42 *C. System load: 8%
  3. I got my hands on a cheap and brand new NanoPi R1 with 1GB RAM now, that will arrive soon. Should be a good choise for handling high network throughput (50-100 MBits in both directions) as i found out. Any personal experiences on this board? Its hard to find direct user rewiews online for this one.
  4. What about these here? - FriendlyELEC NanoPi A64 - 64bit A64 Quadcore 1GB Ram - Radxa D4_512MB_LANonly Rock Pi S 512 MB Ram They are a little low in RAM but could act as a nice middle- or guardnode. Or is there anything that speaks against high bandwith throughput with this boards? 40-50 MBits traffic passing would be a good value and cheaper HW will be hard to find.
  5. Thanks for the warning but after running between 20 and 30 TOR nodes for about 4 years already, I have seen most problems comming up with this. But you are right in the point, not to run an exitnode from your own home network. In this case a middlenode is a good choise and make no problems at all. Exits are better placed in a DC. In Europe some good and cheap options are avaliable for this and own dedicated hardware via a SBC is a good way to go in safe environment. I found the NanoPi Neo3 to be a good choise for this use case. But it’s just ramping up the tra
  6. Hi Armbians In the last years I had the pleasure to have more then 30 Cubietruck boards in my hands to work with. Condition of the boards ranged from "new and still sealed" to "working but has been running for some months 24/7 alraedy". In this time, I learned a lot about this hardware and I learned that none of them seems to be 100% like any other of them. While one board crushes immediately when the power input goes under 5V for some secounds, another board in the same condition, same CT version and production date seems not to care about this and keeps working. One of
  7. Nice tips, thanks a lot. But all these seem to be a bit to low in RAM for what i need them. Sad they do not have higher RAM versions then the 512 MB or 1 GB avaliable.
  8. I have to say that, after I have done the setup, I am really impressed by the performance of this little beast . Exited to see how it will do its job in the datacenter.
  9. Good to hear as I bought one already ;D. But this traffic should be easy to do with this board, right!?
  10. But how do I enable the last resorts of the CT and tune the network throughput to the max.? Is there a way???

  12. So the NanoPi R4S is nice but I am sure there are more options. Any other recommendet boards to run a TOR relay with +50 MBit/s on? The RAM requirement stays 1,5 GB minimum and one interface for ethernet is fine. What about this one: NanoPi Neo 3- 2 GB RAM Sould be a nice one too :). Or is there anything that speaks against it?
  13. One interface is enough for my needs. But this board looks like a nice choise and the price is fine too! Should be given a chance ;).
  14. After setting the parameter „vm.swappiness=0“ and deleting any not absolutely necessary UFW parameter (also the IPv6 ones) I set the network connection parameters again in „armbian-config“. Now the traffic, passing my relays, seems to go back to a normal value again. So I would say this problem is solved! Thanks a lot!
  15. The Nanopi R4S seems to be worth a try! But why not the standart GBE interface? Wouldn‘t it be able to handle the traffic? Overheating would not be a problem as it would be in a DC with full AC cooling. What about the Khadas Vim Pro (V1)? Anyone ever tried it for this use case?
