  • Project changed from pfSense to pfSense Plus
  • Subject changed from Compile openssl to use QAT (than accelerate OpenVPN) to OpenSSL QAT Engine
  • Category changed from OpenVPN to Operating System

It's not clear yet if that would be viable or beneficial, but it is under consideration.

Current implementations of OpenVPN are highly unlikely to reach performance levels where it would benefit from QAT as it will be bogged down by kernel/userland context switching and other problems of its design.
