Hey there, hope everyone's doing well! I wanted to post some info I came across and get opinions on it in regards to Broadcoms infamous/mysterious CTF module. Any posts I've come across or discussions I've been involved in on the topic all seem to share a few points: A.) The CTF module is closed source, and likely came from mystical unicorns. B.) It breaks things. Other functionality provided in Tomato often stops working all together, or ends up providing erroneous results when CTF is enabled. C.) When one has a fast WAN connection, running with CTF enabled can yield significant throughput increases. D.) CTF is likely in reference to "Cut-through Forwarding" And that's about it. Today I came across this snippit in a technical article on network hardware and was rather surprised as I was not familiar with the multiple switching modes, but even more so by the naming and description of one mode specifically: As you can see, cut-through mode gets the frame in an out as fast as possible, yet certainly ignores the majority of information it contains, information other modules hooked into other areas of the network stack would be expecting/need to use down the line. Might this be all the CTF module is? A way to "switch" modes of the "switch"? Nothing magical or based on alien technology, rather just packing two operating models of a switch into one unit? What do you guys think?
