Question

I have a local OpenVPN server on Banan Pi M1, with latest armbian. I tried to replace with OrangePi3 but current results is disappointing

As you can see, connection via OPi3 is slower, but more than that, it is unstabe and fluctuating from 5-8 MBit/s to 40 MBit/s

 

What can I tune to improve openvpn connectivity?

not sure on which kernel you are, but these kernel settings should give a boost:

put a .conf-file in " /etc/sysctl.d " and reboot. 

 

1/
net.core.default_qdisc = fq
net.ipv4.tcp_congestion_control = bbr

2/
net.core.rmem_max = 16777216
net.core.wmem_max = 16777216

net.ipv4.tcp_rmem = 4096 87380 16777216
net.ipv4.tcp_wmem = 4096 87380 16777216

3/ optional
net.ipv4.tcp_fastopen = 3
net.ipv4.tcp_no_metrics_save = 1
net.ipv4.tcp_slow_start_after_idle = 0
net.ipv4.tcp_timestamps = 0

net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.lo.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.eth0.disable_ipv6 = 1

 


and certainly how looks your " server.conf ", eg some interesting settings .

Please mind cipher in this case, I picked AES-128-CBC

proto udp4
txqueuelen 1000
topology subnet

#Set socket buffersize following for UDP recommended, also push to client
sndbuf 393216
rcvbuf 393216
push "sndbuf 393216"
push "rcvbuf 393216"

float           #Allow remote IP to change but keep authentication in place
comp-lzo no     #No need for streaming
fast-io         #Optimize I/O writes

cipher AES-128-CBC
ncp-disable
auth SHA256
auth-nocache
