Which laptop/hardware do I need to run INE R&S Dynamips proposed topology?
Hi, I know how to run Dynamips, start router by router and carefully picking Idle PC one by one watching CPU utilization on Task Manager - OK.
Now I attempt to load the INE proposed R&S topology and after starting the R6 router, it can't go through and Dynamips end up crashing with one error message or the other.
"Error:timed out communicating with dynamips server localhost"
From reading the statement in red below from Brian McGahan, is it a known issue to load all this topology on Windows? How about if I buy a Mac AirBook? For those successfully running this, please tell me what type of Mac or Windows machine I need to run this thing. If I have to buy a Mac, I will but please let me know minimum hardware requirements.
My Windows laptop is Win7, 2GB RAM and dual core CPU2.40Ghz. I increased page file size but that did not help.
These files were written with MacOS in mind, but can be easily modified to run on Windows and/or Linux. From my personal experience it is very unlikely that you will get the entire topology to boot on Windows without a massive amount of hardware to back it up..."
