    MarkLuun got a reaction from TRS-80 in Best SBC to run as network relay with "high" bandwidth   
    After having the NanoPi Neo 3 in use for some time, I can say the white case shipped by FriendlyElec is a little problematic seen from the site of cooling down the CPU.
    The colocation room has full AC with 15 *C room temp but under high load, the CPU temp goes up to 61-62 *C.
    I think something like this might be a better choise because the air flow is much higher:

    The producer of this case told me another case with the possibility to add a 40 cm fan gets addet soon. Might even be better!

    The NanoPi R1 is running in the DC for 17 days now.
    But with one port connected (GBit WAN port) its getting ~26 MBits traffic in both directions done. A little bit disappointing as i had high hopes to see another beast like the Neo 3 in it.
    I will try to connect the second port and split incomming/outgoing traffic between WAN/LAN port. Maybe this gives some better results. If not, i see no reason for this one to have twice the price of the Neo 3.
    We will see...

    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.

    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%

    - AFAIK discontinued
    - not well supported with mainline kernel yet

    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 traffic now. Will take some days to have results that count.

    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.
