Pfsense default speed cap?
I've got a 500/500Mbps fiber internet connection at home. I run pfsense as a VM on a vmware host.
The thing is, the pfsense VM doesn't seem to route more then 250/250Mbps. I've already checked my connection; My ugly Archer C7 does 500/650Mbps on speedtest.net
I've already given the pfsense VM more resources (lots of ram, lots of vCPU, but when I do a speedtest, CPU and RAM isn't doing much at all (it would seem), still i'm not getting more bandwidth then 250Mbps.
Anyone have any ideas?
We experienced a dramatic slow down on network throughput after migrating from esxi 4.1 to 5.1. This wasn't just internet traffic… it was all vms.
I advise some throughput tests from vm to vm, physical client to vm and then physical client to pfsense vm, vm to pfsense vm.
We've migrated our pfsense vma to a physical one and haven't witnessed any throughput issues.
