MontaVista Linux is the industry-leading Linux operating system for embedded environments. It provides a common platform across a broad range of processor architectures. MontaVista Linux Professional Edition features a modern OS and kernel, with real-time functionality, multi-process and multi- threaded execution, high performance networking, and extensive bundled software components.
Demonstration tests were conducted using MontaVista Linux Professional Edition running on Intel Architecture (IA-32) platforms with Intel IXP425 XScale processors on the front-end. MontaVista Linux supports both Intel processor families - as such, targeting the XScale-based Intel IXP425 platform with SSH QuickSec Toolkit proved a straightforward cross-compiling exercise. The tests, using the publicly available Netperf benchmark, showed the combined MontaVista/SSH solution quickly approaching line-speed with moderate packet size and conservative CPU utilization, and good throughput for encrypted traffic.
