10gigabit pfSense 2.4.4-RC on HyperV max speeds of 600mbits



  • I'm trying to be a virtualized 10 gigabit router for my home network and I'm struggling to get over 1 gigabit speeds on my virtualized pfSense install on Hyper-V.

    Spec of Hyper-V VM:
    4 cores i7 4790k 4.6ghz
    4096mb of ram
    Intel X550-T2 gigabit nic

    I've tried disabling all VMQ's, hardware offloading, etc. But I still can't get over 600megabits when running speed tests.

    Any ideas? I can post more information if needed.



  • I have similar problem with pfsense install on Openstack.
    Have you solved this problem yet????



  • For 10Gbps SR-IOV and VMQ actually do something. What is your CPU usage like? If you also disabled RSS that will limit you to a single core, which 10Gbps might cause an issue.
