Limiters not working as expected…
I'm experiencing a trouble with limiters.
We have an internet connection that is shared between multiple clients. 12 mbits(up&down)
First client have 10 mbits max and the other one have 4 mbits max.
Each client have an interface in Pfsense. (all with public IP and NAT disabled)
I created two limiters for each client.
client1_in 10mbits & client1_out 10mbits
client2_in 2mbits & client2_out 2mbits
I have one floating rules (inbound direction) for each client interface that redirect all traffic into their respective in & out pipe and with the shared wan connection as gateway.
When I make a speedtest it seems to work, traffic is well shaped in both direction.
But in practice client1 full upload can reach continuously 12 mbits.
Is there a possibility that limiters could be bypassed and explain why this happens ? (Last 2.1 snapshot)
Thank you for your help.
Here is a graph of the 12mbits client, upload in green not correctly shaped, and download in blue, stay under 10mbits.
