Odroid HC2 (Exynos-5422) openvpn client tweaks?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I want to try out my Odroid HC2 as an openvpn client. I don't expect great performance but I want to make sure I set it up correctly.

This is why I want to ask if anyone can give any recommendations or tweaks for using it as an openvpn client.

 

Idk much about openvpn, I know it uses openssl for de and encryption. Is there a way to use hardware de and encryption so I can speed things up and have a better download speed via openvpn? Or is hw de/encryption maybe already used by default if I just install openvpn package?

Any recommendations on how to correctly set this up are appreciated.

HC2 doesn't have AES-NI so I don't know what HA you mean. First, just start using. What transfers do you currently have?

Meh, dl speed is only at 7 mb/s. With my router I get at least 10 mb/s....Any idea if I could up that somehow?

I now changed governor to performance but that doesn't seem to do much.

Strange thing I noticed is, that running htop, it only shows 8 little cpu cores not 4 big and 4 little....Also cpu frequency never exceeds 1.5 ghz on any core....Is there sth. wrong?

 

This is cat cat /etc/default/cpufrequtils output:


# WARNING: this file will be replaced on board support package (linux-root-...) upgrade
ENABLE=true
MIN_SPEED=600000
MAX_SPEED=2000000
GOVERNOR=performance
