Just installed pfSense on Xenserver 6.0 - Packet Collisions



  • Hello, i am new to pfSense but i have just installed in on my Xenserver box for testing purposes and noticed that i am getting a large amount of pack collisions, this doesn't seem to be affecting network performance though, just thought it was a strange occurrence.

    The networks are all set to 100baseTX full duplex.

    if it helps here are pingtest and speedtest results to show that service has not been diminished by these collisions.

    These are both normal results for my connection:

    Can someone enlighten me as to why this might be happening or if it even matters?
