PPPoE performance under Linux and BSDs

This article benchmarks the transfer rates and CPU usage of using Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) under Linux, OpenBSD, NetBSD, and FreeBSD.

Simply put, the most reasonable choices as PPPoE client operating system are NetBSD 1.6 and Linux 2.4. Linux 2.4 was more configurable while NetBSD was slightly better in performance and required less effort to set up. 32MB of RAM was sufficient for NetBSD, but not enough for Linux 2.4.
