How to measure maximum FW-Throughput?

  • Hey  :)

    We are going to have a demo-device of a 1U-Server for testing with pfSense.

    I would like to find out how many Mbit/s the Hardware can handle…

    Could anybody please advise me how to measure that?

    Is there a good way of bringing the box to it's limits?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Best regards,


  • iperf is good for this. It is a client server application for testing throughput.

    [iperf box] –--- [pfsense box] –-- [iperf box]

  • Thanks for your reply!

    I'll have a look into that program, thanks  :)

    Best regards,
