Over 20Gbps throughput question

  • Is it possible to achieve greater than 20Gbps with pfSense?

    This is what I would be running:

    • BGP to load balance between two 10Gbps links to two different ISPs
    • NAT will be very minimal
    • Suricata in IPS mode (Understand the number of rules will affect throughput)
    • There will be a max of 10k devices connecting through it

    Its been a very long time since I've run pfSense needing very high throughput. Any suggestions on hardware or am I completely mad?

    Was looking at Supermicro box with 64GB RAM and Intel Gold 6230N 20 core CPU. NICs are the Intel X772 and X557

    thanks all
