tatsuya46 i got this from you time ago
still in my set up so far so good

echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/eth0/arp_ignore
echo 2 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/eth0/arp_announce

echo 2 > /proc/irq/31/smp_affinity
echo 2 > /proc/irq/67/smp_affinity
echo 2 > /proc/irq/89/smp_affinity
echo 2 > /proc/irq/255/smp_affinity

sadly i had explanations for each line but lost it
somewhere.. but roughly it moves eth0 and wi-fi
the top 2 lines ware related with ARP Spoofing if im not wrong and i just noticed i may not need them any more as there is a setting ARP Spoofing Protection



now this looks a bit different

echo 2 > /proc/irq/100/smp_affinity
echo 1 > /proc/irq/101/smp_affinity


different kernel different interrupts for the interfaces. both radios are interrupt hogs on k4.9 even when idle with no connected devices, i get best results having wan on the other core and lan on first core with the radios

tatsuya46:
so now only the last two lines are needed?
I thought those two only related to the cpu load balancing part.
Or is it the second group of 4 lines + the last group of 2 lines (for balancing)?

only
echo 2 > /proc/irq/100/smp_affinity
echo 1 > /proc/irq/101/smp_affinity

is needed, for a r7800, u need to find what the interrupt is for ea8500 and adjust accordingly. echo 2 (second core) for wan interface (eth0), echo 1 (first core) for lan interface (eth1)

Thanks for the clarification, tatsuya46.
I tried the R7800 settings; not sure if any improvement.
The R7800 chipset is very similar to a 1.7MHz version of the same chipset as the EA8500 at 1.4MHZ, and same as R7500v2
I might need a fellow EA8500 user to help find the correct interrupts for me if they are different

Ok mrjcd!
Hmmm...I'm still a bit lost in there...
eth0 looks to be irq100
no sign of eth1.
Might they be the same as r7800?

Even though EA8500 & r7800 have same make/model switch the EA8500 switch is not separated.

I had read that somewhere once.
So does that mean that it is not possible to use the r7800 solution of tasuya46's on the EA8500?

I guess you could move the both 'ath10k_pci' --- 103 & 136
and see what happens
My 50/50 connection tis good enough for us and I never really have a problem Cool

Not sure if I want to experiment too much.
Using 100 and 101 (as per R7800) has not caused any grief so far, but I might revert to defaults for now.

thanks.......yea meant 103 & 136

but now that I think about it prolly be simpler to just move 100 (eth0) to CPU1
....imma bit slow these days... yall just have to overlook some my stuff Confused
