Hi, I’m at a very novice level with my linux-fu and was wondering if there was a simple way to check if AES-NI (encryption acceleration) is in use on my little Armbian based lab devices? I use a couple boards from Friendly Elec that leverage the Cortex-A53(Neo2) and Rockchip RK3328(R2S). Both chips seem to support AES-NI but I thought it would have a larger performance impact than the 30%ish boost I’m seeing now with 1.6. EDIT: I figure this boost is from raw CPU benefiting from the new cryptography implemented.
I’m a net-eng by trade but this project has re-ignited my interest for learning linux all over again :). The team is making awesome progress and ZT is definitely my favourite new find this year!
