    SubjectVM tuning for Linux routers

    I have a dual Athlon w/ 512M RAM and three NICs (one gigabit
    3c985B running 802.1Q with 5 VLANs, two on-board 100Mbit 3c982). This box
    has almost nothing other to do apart from routing and packet filtering.
    Is there anything I can do to tell the VM system to use as much memory
    for network packets as possible?

    I haven't got time to measure the throughput at gigabit speeds
    yet, but I wonder if there is a way to tell the kernel "this box does
    routing/firewalling, and almost nothing else".
