More Memory Makes Dynamips Happy

I finally dropped a gig stick of RAM in my laptop (it was at 512 megs) and fired up Dynamips.  What a difference!!!  I’m able to run more device instances and they run much faster.  I’m going to swap out the 512 meg stick for another gig stick this weekend.  Since I’ll be doing a lot of technology specific labs this week, I’ll probably be doing most of them in Dynamips.

  1. Yea Dynamips is very memory intensive. I had it running off of 3 gigs in Vista. I have it running off of 2 gigs now though on my mac mini. If I was able to get the USB nics to work in Linux I would of saved the $800 on the mac :). The more I bridged out the nics on windows to the real switches the more the machine crawled.
