• I've got my load balancer set up in using the Sunday 10th 22:00 i386 build, but the issue is with the network speed. I've got a 20Mbit, and a 10Mbit link, one is a cable connection and one is a DSL connection, the traffic is moving through the two, but when I run something which should in theory be using both links (a torrent for example) I don't get the maximum throughput I'd expect, in fact, it goes even slower than my cable link alone barely going above 2MB\s, but when I use the links separately (either or) they get 2.3MB\s and 1.1MB\s respectively.

    I was wondering if anyone has come across this problem before?

    To give a bit more information into my setup here is a small diagram,

    And if it's any help, my config.

    Thanks

    What kind of hardware are you running this on?

    What kind of CPU usage are you seeing on the firewall when trying to do these transfers?

    Also, make sure those torrents are only downloading, not uploading. If they are uploading they may be maxing out your upstream which can choke off your downstream if you can't send out ACKs in a timely manner.


  • Sorry for the late reply, been on holiday. :)

    My hardware is a Atom N270 with 256Mb RAM, 2 RT GbE nics (http://tinyurl.com/3aclpoe) and a Intel Pro 100S, using the CF card slot to boot from, although, I'm not using the embedded version.
