I've posted this some time back in the "Omada Controller 3.0.2 for Linux (including new tpeap v1.4)" thread, but figured maybe a seperate topic would be better.


We were deciding between buying the OC200 or running the controller software on a Raspberry Pi and decided to do some tinkering. We're running the official 3.0.5 binaries from TP-Link. However, because TP-Link uses some binaries compiled for x86 we're using Java and MongoDB versions provided by Debian/Raspbian compiled for the ARMv8 platform.

If anyone has questions, I'm not very often at this forum, but will answer when I can :)

Hi jobnn,

 

The TP-Link said the minimum RAM requirement of Omada Controller is about 2G, I think the RAM of Raspberry Pi is just 1G, do you think if it may affect the performance of Controller?

I am running TP_link Omada 3.0.2 on an RPi 2 as built by R1D2 in this thread and the loads are pretty acceptable:

(on average 7 clients, 5 SSID's over 3 accespoints)
