In order to use Cisco IOU images on Linux systems, we will install GNS3 with IOU support. Before I set up the GNS3 IOU, let’s talk briefly about what is the IOU and what it does.
What is IOU in GNS3?
IOU (IOS on Unix) is a technology that looks like Dynamips but uses fewer resources. IOU images imitate all the features of a particular Cisco IOS technology.
The IOU is also referred to as the Cisco IOU. IOU images do not require a hypervisor to imitate the Cisco hardware, and IOU images are much more powerful than Dynamips. IOU use in GNS3 uses system memory and CPU less.
As a result, using Cisco IOU images on GNS3 allows you to create more specific network topologies.
