vSRX in GNS3

Hi Guys, 

Hope someone can help me with this. Spend 8 hours to solve but failed. Basically trying to setup a vSRX lab in GNS3, it slowed down my machine horribly, always at 99% CPU usage - almost unusable now. 

 

Full details:

vSRX - junos-vsrx-12.1X47-D15.4

VirtualBox 5.2

GNS3 1.4.4

OS is Windows 10 on esxi

Allocated 4 CPU 3.75

RAM 12GB

 

Created 2 vSRX, connected via ge-0/0/0 -> ge-0/0/0

Result: Both srx(virtualbox vm) is running at 99% CPU usage. 

 

Googled and found people advising idle-pc setting, but i dont see any such feature in GNS3(when i right click on my Junos device). 

 

Could you please help here? Is there any other alternatives to avoid high CPU usage, or even alternative to GNS3? Any advise for a good lab setup for JNCIA?

 

Thanks.

Since you have ESXi setup, you can directly deploy vSRX on it.

Hello,

In 2019, Juniper vLabs (free after registering) are the way to go
