Bandwidth not matching the one set in the shaper

  • I have a 50 Mbit/s Line (2,5 Mbit/s Up). I habe configured my LAN Interface for 1 Gbit/s. I have created a Sub Queue internet with a bandwidth of 50 Mbit/s and a upper Limit of 50 MBit/s. Scheduler is hfsc. With this configuration I only get a download speed of 20 MBit/s. When I set the upper Limit to 100 MBit/s I can download with the full 50 Mbit/s. I didn't expect this. Is this normal behaviour? I am running pfsense as a VM with KVM. Could this problem be caused by kvm? Perhaps the PFsense vm cannot determine the exact Speeds because of Timing problems? Any ideas anyone?

  • Because it's not correctly implemented I guess.

  • And what could I have implemented wrongly in this simple setup?

  • It has to be added to the firewall rules. And if that doesn't work pfSense is implementing it wrong.

  • Post a screenshot of your shaper. Do you have only 1 queue? Are you sure the traffic isn't being catched and sent to another queue? Is the default queue correctly set?

  • I have the same problem! :(
