Shaper wizard: it set higher speed than specified?
pfSense 2.0.2 Release, using "Single Lan multi Wan" wizard.
I set the upload and download speed to "23" "Megabit" in the wizard.
However, when I look at the queues, this is not what it is actually using:
LAN, Bandwidth [Blank ] [Kbit/sec]
- Bandwidth [24117.248] [kbit/sec]
- Service Curve, Upper limit, m2 [24117.248Kb]
- Service Curve, Link share, m2 [24117.248Kb]
I have no idea where it is getting that number from. It doesn't even work out using binary (1024) math:
24117.248Kb / 1024 = 23.552 Mb
I don't know what the point would be of setting the shaper to think we have more bandwidth than we actually do.
Though I am going to contact our ISP to get our exact bandwidth in bits/sec so I'm not dealing with 1000/1024 conversion issues.
Ah, I see it is
24117248 / 1024 / 1024 = 23
Boy that is weird. The ISP says we are 23 * 1000 * 1000 or 23,000,000.
So apparently I gotta convert from 1000 to 1024 for the shaper wizard?
23,000,000 / 1024 = 22460.9375
I paste that in:
And the resulting config is different.
What's going on here?
