This isn’t the same test or kernel, but I don’t see a problem running 128 flows *generated by* the APU2 with fq_codel or Cake at line rate with kernel 4.9.110-1. Of course, when it’s actually generating the traffic, it’s out of CPU at these speeds. I’ll see if I can do a pure routing test later at the lab, to at least exonerate 4.9…
