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.
vSRX - junos-vsrx-12.1X47-D15.4
OS is Windows 10 on esxi
Allocated 4 CPU 3.75
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?
Since you have ESXi setup, you can directly deploy vSRX on it.
In 2019, Juniper vLabs (free after registering) are the way to go
