So I have made some more findings about Dynamips

  • Running more hypervisors is not more effecient than running one, will load balance over cores anyway
  • GNS3 is just a hassle, stick with Dynagen if you have a set topology

This means that in my previous post it is only necessary to run two hypervisors, one local and one remote. I decided to run R1-R4 on my laptop and everything else on my other computer. This keeps the load at around 35% on my laptop and 75% on the other computer. It’s good that my laptop doesn’t get so high CPU load because I use it to run all the telnet sessions. I am using Putty to login to the console since this is what is used at the R&S lab.
