**Question** Have any of you used the 10gb interface



  • Hi all,

    I am just curious on if any of you have used the 10Gb sfp+ on a PFS box?  Have you used it on a 10gb circuit?  Were you able to take full advantage of the circuit?  What type of hardware did you use for the PFS Box?

    For sure it might be going well but it is mostly more a problem what the most peoples will
    thinking what they must be getting out of that connections! In usual you will be getting out
    under real life conditions 2 GBit/s - 4 GBit/s real throughput from a 10 GBit/s uplink.

    Have you used it on a 10gb circuit?

    10 GbE uplink to the DMZ switch and to the LAN switch.

    Were you able to take full advantage of the circuit?

    From the pfSense to the DMZ switch (Layer2+) and from the pfSense to the
    LAN switch (Layer3) it will be all will be running more smooth and liquid.

    What type of hardware did you use for the PFS Box?

    Intel Xeon E3 >3.0GHz
    Single Intel Xeon E5 >3.0GHz
    Dual Intel Xeon E5 >3.0GHz

    Intel single or dual Port SFP+ adapters
    HotLava (Intel based) multiport NICs

    Supermicro Boards & one Gigabyte board.
