PfSense 2.2 Hyper-V Performance tuning



  • Is there any tweaks to the performance of pfsense under hyper-v 2012r2?  I'm running pfsense 2.2 and i'm starting to think that my slow network issues are related to pfsense.



  • Sorry that this is a bit late but I've had a couple of instances where it seemed that the network performance was sluggish under Hyper-V 2012R2.

    We have found the problem to be with the Broadcom network cards and their handling of VMQ. I believe that there is a firmware and driver update to fix this but have found that just disabling the "Virtual Machine Queues" under the properties of the network car on the host fixes the issue.
