Pfsense is limiting upload speed

  • Hi there.

    I've checked traffic shaper and there were some values for WAN/LAN interface (around 50Mbits/sec), however my traffic in this case is not going through those interfaces, but through some third one. No limit is set there and Diagnostics -> Limiter it says - Limiters: No limiters were found on this system.

    That being said, I have a strange case. I have the following setup:

    1. VM1 going outside through FW1
    2. VM2 going outside through vmvare

    The both setup I can reach max download speed of 9-10MB/s, however upload speed is problematic. If I'm uploading to one test server via SCP I get:

    1. with setup 1 I get upload speed of max ~ 9MB/s
    2. with setup 2 I get upload speed of max ~ 4-5MB/s

    Any idea what and where could be an issue with pfsense? I've launched few speedtests and I can see upload speed difference even there. How come I lose around 50% upload speed via pfsense.

  • Hello,

    I'm having the same issue. My pfsense is limiting my upload to all of my LAN. I have not defined anything. Any idea?
