How "Firewall Maximum Table Entries size" correspond or depend to total amount of avail for FreeBSD system memory?



  • How "Firewall Maximum Table Entries size" value correspond or depend to total amount of avail for FreeBSD system memory ?

    Please point me on a source where described in details how important for network operations resources like

    • NICs controllers (CPU, memory on controllers, number of Eth ports on each controller);
    • whole appliance memory amount;
    • main appliance CPU;
      and
      memory/network/cpu core settings in FreeBSD;

    influence on pfSense speed, troughtput and stability of operation.

    Common words are less interesting than numbers, of course :)

    Thank You!
