Additional Boot Argument Configuration
Open, Requires assessmentPublicFEATURE REQUEST

Description

It would be extremely useful if it was possible to set boot arguments; for example something like:

set system boot-args "intel_idle.max_cstate=0 processor.max_cstate=1"

This would help in troubleshooting, as well as in lab environments where things like Spectre and Meltdown mitigations can severely hinder performance.

That could als help on debugging like adding vyos-config-debug option or as I like on my hosts, vga=773 when debugging and checking for config migration issues.

so +1 from me
