Debating SG-3100 vs SG-5100
I currently have a USG 3P Ubiquity firewall I'm looking to replace as I recently switched to 1 GB internet service (Vz FiOS). I have a Unifi US-24-250W network switch (all 24 ports used, 12 PoE). Most internet traffic is typical home use (constant multiple video streams and PlayStation traffic). I do run a server with several services from home, but this doesn't account for much bandwidth/usage. I'm not too concerned with VPN usage (may use it on occasion, but not regularly).
The pfSense will be the gateway, DNS server, DHCP server, and NAT. In the past, I have used telegraf (which I understand might be an issue with the SG-3100?) and pfBlockerNG, which I would plan on using again. I may also be interested in using HAProxy, Squid, and SNORT in the future.
I have seen the chart comparing the various pfSense products and the speeds the reportedly support. But, sometimes there's more to the story. I don't want to waste money getting the SG-5100 if the SG-3100 could readily handle what I want to do, but I also don't want to waste my money/time with the SG-3100 if it's not going to do what I need.
If anyone has any thoughts, I would appreciate hearing them!
If you want to run several heavy packages like that you should go for the SG-5100.
The SG-3100 will pass at or close to Gigabit for firewall & NAT but loading CPU intensive packages will reduce that.
And yes there is currently no Telegraf package for armv7 devices due to the complie requirements. We are working on it but there is no ETA.
@stephenw10 - Thanks for the feedback.
