OpenWrt 23.05.2 - Service Release

in 4pda forum about some beeline routers, OpenWrt related people talkin is OpenWrt already ready to split for pay/free versions like redhat/fedora due to high money interest related to OpenWrt its own hardware, i personally think OpenWrt is new Ubiquiti and there is no time for stable patches like 23.05.3 so for me look legit

This is complete and utter nonsense. Please stop spreading unsubstantiated FUD, especially without quoting any actual sources.

Who are those OpenWrt related people talking there? Why are they talking in the 4pda forum and not in the OpenWrt forum? How is it related to Beeline routers?

that is totally random... can you link this forum/topic? Those kind of claim are BS.

Releasing minor release are not tied to any kind of waiting time. If we need to do it (due to a security vulnerability fixed, us fixing other kind of bug or having to fix a family of device broken) we just make it.

On top of that, Openwrt One will be based on an already well established base with the MediaTek SoCs... aka these "massive issues" doesn't actually exist.

The guys on that project don't want to put all kind of experimental crap (2.5g switch) (wifi 7 cards) for this exact reason of providing a good product.

Does irqbalance and packet steering works well together with mvebu? I'll get 500/100mbps fiber soon and I wonder if I should enable those options on my WRT3200ACM as I'm also using SQM cake layer_cake. Is there anything important that I should know about before installing the irqbalance package and enable packet steering?

You can enable both, but neither will do much. There is no multi-core DSA so most things will be on CPU0 with CPU1 not doing much. SQM cake works great on your target up to about 600 Mbps where it will max out the CPU.

Is there any work being done to add multi core support in DSA?

Not to my knowledge. There was talk about it on the Turris Omnia/mvebu side for a bit but don't think it happened. (There are likely some significant technical hurdles there.)

It's already there from a lot of times... It's the mvebu driver that doesn't support it.

So if I build a new x86 router is it going to be multi-core DSA ready?

Most x86_64 hardware doesn't include any hardware switch at all, just multiple independent network cards on the mainboard (which are then bridged in software). Exceptions exist (typically devices with >4 ports), but the details depend very much on the (integrated switch-)hardware.

Does irqbalance help?

Irqbalance won't do much with mvebu, check the doc page under examples you'll see it shifts very little from CPU0 to CPU1.

I'm runnning it on my GL-MT6000 for a few days will put that up there too (although not sure if anything changed on kernel 6.1 it thanks to devs just switched to it.)

I keep getting these messages in syslog. Have not found a solution that works yet.
