Does i.MX6 Ultralite support any kind of hardware acceleration of Ethernet switching on its two Ethernet interfaces? And if yes how to enable it?
If I compile and use the Linux Ethernet bridge module, then system load at maximum 100Mbit throughput is approximately 50% when 1500 byte packets are used. If smaller packets are used then the system load goes easily to 100%.
Platform used: IMX6UL-EVK
Kernel/BSP: Linux imx6ulevk 3.14.38-6UL_ga+ge4944a5 (compiled with bridge module)
Traffic generator: iperf -s / iperf -c
Load test: sar -u 5 100
Thank you very much beforehand.
