We'd like to encourage people to conduct their own performance tests with nf-HiPAC independent from what we did. Our performance tests focus on the comparison of the worst case behavior of iptables and nf-HiPAC. Actually we need more sophisticated tests but we also appreciate it if you have done some simple nf-HiPAC tests.

Please send your results to coreteam@hipac.org .

So far, there have been the following independent tests:

Jozsef Kadlecsik and György Pasztor

Very nice and sophisticated performance tests including iptables, ipset and nf-hipac.
