Just a word about it. Currently we (a french hoster http://www.nfrance.com) use
DragonFly (2.6 has 2.8 broke ipsec) as primary OS for our routers (20 machines)
with quagga and ipf. And its work really well (better than FreeBSD we were
previously using).

Our requirement for routing machines is to be able to gracefuly handle
200-300mb/s traffic load with filtering (stateless) and bgp/ospf routing
(full table). Crash test is at 400mb/s in lab.

We choose ipf for historical reasons (previously used on FreeBSD). But
we experienced on FreeBSD that it's really faster than pf.

Do you think there is currently an other software (maybe ipfw) that can
filter 200/300 mb/s load ?
