Information

Notes

  • 2021/07/02: :!: When using Oculus Air Link and a speed test at 60Mbps download, CPU 0 is around 75% load and the other 3 are 1-5%. Packet Steering is disabled by-default and doesn't seem to do anything when enabled. irqbalance spreads the load quite nicely and drops CPU 0 in the same situation to around 20%. Presumably, if ISP speeds increase beyond 60Mbps, irqbalance will be required.
  • 2021/08: For 5GHz, the wireless channels chosen needs to do 30 dBm on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz. For 5GHz, 149 works fine.
