Dear all,

has anyone else noticed the CPU consumption on FreeBSD kernel Wireguard?

For my test link, there is a net speed of 200 Mbit/s.

On esxi based host, transferring inside Wireguard tunnel, full speed
takes about 90% of xeon d-1541 host.

Doing this on CentOS 7, takes less than 20% of the same host.
