inconsistent internet speeds
I have a 150/5 speeds. With the old router, I average 140mbps. Since PFSense I'm averaging 110Mbps but more often I'm getting around 60-70. Occassionally i'd go over 170mbps but rarely
The box is a T620 with the Gx420, 16gb ram, 120gb M2 Intel Quad NIC
shows that I'm only using 4% CPU... my Bios is the original bios from 2014. Trying to update the BIOS as we speak. Saw a few other threads about disabling the hardware checksum offload for VM's so I figure I follow some of those recommendation but no help either.
How are you testing?
How does the usage break down across cores?
Are the interupt rates from the NIC reasonable? Are they spreading load across the cores?
