Query on iperf results

  • I have a Linux desktop and a Mac laptop all hardwired to my network on subnet (VLAN10).

    If I run a iperf test between the Linux and Mac, the bitrate is ~900+ Mbits/sec, so that's great.

    But if I run the same test and use pfSense as the server or client (APU2), the bitrate drops to ~400 Mbits/sec.

    Can someone help explain why I can get great results with a client to client test but average results when testing from pfSense to a client (or vice versa)?
