R80.30 VSX gateway with 3.10 kernel - yes or no

Just planning my R80.30 upgrades and mulling over if I should go with 3.10 kernel on our 23800 VSX clusters or keep it 2.6? Seen some issues reported with 3.10 and we can't afford instability. Pretty happy with current performance on R80.10 with old kernel so leaning towards the safe option.. same time there are bunch of interesting OS features

Any feedback on those who run VSX and R80.30 with 3.10 kernel?

One of the first things would be the question, is it already supported on the 23800? Not to my knowledge only in R80.40 will all appliances be supported.
One of the main advantages I was told is the kernel based multi queuing abilities.

In the past few months, we approved the 23k line for usage w 3.10 mainly for the use case of user space firewall where r80.30+3.10 is much more mature.

You can consult the support for the specific case.

Thanks Dorit! I guess for stability reasons we will stick with 2.6 then and upgrade when it's more mature!
