Vlan WANS High latency or packet loss on high traffic
i have an issue that i cant figure out
my setup is this
alix pfsense with
port1 = lan1 1
port2 = lan 2
port 3 = wan (connected to d-link switch and via vlans (3,4,5) on dsl lines
i have 3 dsl lines which are connected on a 1000 dlink switch
vlan 3 = dsl line 1
vlan4 = dsl line 2
vlan 5 = dsl line 3
all dsl lines are 9mb down 1mb up
on no load i have pings around 25-35 which is normal for our isps
on high load i get pings around 800 or even packet losses
i have checked for colisions or in/out errors on interface statistics and i have none
any clue why this might happening?
its posible for the switch to be too much to handdle?
thank you in advance
Try traffic shaping to within a megabit of your download. Most ISP's just drop packets once the max is hit, where as traffic shaping can be a much more smooth process. This is not a cure-all, softly queueing traffic might not drop it, but will add latency. Also, are you seeing any packet loss?
