Our single-router installation was rock stable under netbsd-5, and when
it showed the occasional hiccup under -7, there was a push towards
redundancy. So I set up a pair of machines running as failover routers
(carp, pf) with netbsd-7, then netbsd-8.
The crash rate went from twice a day to twice an hour; PRs are 51729,
51877, 51930, 52263. In the end, I had to acknowledge I was clearly out
of my depth, and looked elsewhere. When I learned that FreeBSD had
mp-enabled pf, my choice was made. The installation is stable, and max.
throughput over 10 GBE is +50% over NetBSD.
I put pkgsrc on the machines, and I do miss NetBSD's clean simplicity -
FreeBSD feels byzantine at times. But there is no arguing in the face
