This is due to the fact that uboot enters cli mode cause of a hardware bug in uart which shorts it and passed garbage entry when uboot waits for user input to enter cli. Also the board I’ve received came with an aluminum case, which has a dual purpose, for housing -of course- and it’s also used to cool down the CPU. You may need to prise it out gently from the USB ports side if the heatsink pad sticks the board to the case. If you plan on using OpenWrt with the router/gateway, then it may be good, but for Debian based Linux distributions waiting for Armbian images may be advised both for stability and improved performance. My original plan was to create a Yocto BSP layer for the board as I’ve also did with the NanoPi R2S in a recent post here.

No throttling was detected, and for instance, 7-zip scores (~5800) are roughly the same as for RockPi 4C with the Rockchip RK3399 clocked a 1. After compilation is done a new image file will be generated in the "rockdev/Image-nanopc_t4/" directory under Android7's source code directory. I’ve actually seen significant difference by moving the IRQs and the RPS to CPU4 for eth0 and CPU5 for eth, which are the 1. As you can see the CPU usage is ~35%, but most of the load is because of the docker daemon that is running in the background. I put the sd card on the r4s and turn it on, the red led will light up and after some moments the lan and wan led will light up together for like 1-2 seconds then they will turn off to never turn on again and the system led will never turn on.Someone could argue here that the switch should be placed after the LAN and not before WAN, because WAN is meant to be connected to your ADSL/VDSL router. The NanoPi R4S(as "R4S") is an open source platform with dual-Gbps Ethernet ports designed and developed by FriendlyElec for IoT applications. You will have to manual change the source link to get updated pkgs if your using image made by sleepwalker as he have created a new repo to maintain all bsd builds. FriendlyWRT, or at least the sources for it, is just a few minor configuration tweaks for performance + default packages. FriendlyARM NanoPi R4S The NanoPi R4S (as “R4S”) is an open source platform designed and developed by FriendlyElec for IoT applications.

The effects will ripple through time and space and improve the support of a lot of other devices now and in the future. The problem this time is that Armbian hasn’t released yet support for this board, therefore I thought it’s a good chance to benchmark the board itself. For the power supply interface, FriendlyElec used a USB Type C interface, which is very comfortable too. I even refuse to waste my time reading network tests reports if the report suggests that nobody knows how affinity was done nor which modules were loaded.

For example I prefer to have the WiFi router before the WAN and some of my devices after the LAN, so the devices connected with before WAN don’t have access to the LAN devices via the bridge interface. That in turn means newer devices are not necessarily more performant than older ones**, but for the RS series target market I am a bit puzzled that the RS5 is not a clear winner. FriendlyCore has some issues, and limited information in NanoPi R2S Wiki, so instead let’s try FriendlyWrt, and I flashed rk3399-sd-friendlywrt-5.

The quality of the NanoPi R4S, including all accessories provided for this review, was excellent and above average. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The balanced (high) speeds of the Pi 4 cores make a difference, but at the expense of slightly higher WAN latency when using a USB NIC and less convenient sysupgrades (due to missing kernel modules). This can be fixed by making ctrl+c as default in uboot to make it only enter cli when these key combination of met. After taking out the four rubber pads and loosening the four screws on the bottom of the enclosure we can access the board.

The Nanopi R4S is powered by a Rockchip RK399 SoC equipped with a 6-core (Hexa Core) CPU, which is considered to be a high-end performance chip for SBCs. At the heart of NanoPi R4S, FriendlyELEC has chosen Rockchip RK3399 hexa-core processor with dual-core Cortex-A72 up to 2. Insert the SD card into your computer, go to the SD card's OS-related directory, and edit the file parameter. I already tried alot of combinations, amongst others opnsense/opnsense, root/root, admin/admin, freebsd/freebsd and any combinations of those. I recently bought an R5S hoping to use it as a gigabit router with some future proofing due to the 2.

Compared to its predecessor NanoPi R2s FriendlyElec offers 1 GByte or 4 GByte DDR3 RAM configurations on a small PCB measuring 66 x 66 mm, so the board is very compact and can be placed almost in every environment without occupying too much space. If you need to adjust the speed of each gear, you can modify the kernel dts file and recompile the kernel to achieve the purpose, the specific dts and modified location can be referred to the following commit: https://github. I think that way the results will reflect the most common case scenarios, which is use the board in a home or small office environment.

Biggest problem with SQM on the R4S at gigabit line rate is that the lower-speed cores aren't quite up to the task of handling interrupts and nowhere near powerful enough for line-rate shaping.

Globally unique MAC addresses lead to better network performance in complicated network situations and are better for large-scale enterprise applications that manage multiple network devices and operations such as IP binding.
