[backplane switching] recommendation for performance switching between subnets
could you help me about build a pfsense for : filtering,monitoring and switching as layer 3 switching.. i have a problem with that..i dont know pfsense suppport if rate switching about 3Gps or 1 million pps
and help me in supporting Hardware recommendation or other method
I m planning to use 4 NIC for each NIC have 1 Vlan
the VLAN10 : 10 server ( web, sql, domain, dns etc…)
VLAN20 : 100 user ( Lan internal)
VLAN30 : Callcenter
WAN : 60Mbps/60Mbps
Thank you so much and sorry about my English 's not good .
Curious to hear other answers. My gut says that if you don't need firewall rules between your VLANs, use a good, layer 3 switch. You're going to need things like DHCP helpers, etc. The proper domain of a switch. Create a 4th VLAN going to pfSense and let it firewall your 60/60 WAN, at which it will excel.
thanks for your advice,
so i want firewall between subnets for monitoring, filtering and bandwidth management, what should i do ?
i have to approve some rules from subnets to Server
i could use ACL and port minoring on switch layer 3 instead,is that ok ?
I don't know that pfSense won't do it. You'll certainly have to throw some hardware at it. One million pps? Really?
I'd wait for others to answer or call ESF/netgate.
do you think about pf sense all in one ( routing, switching and firewall ) depend on hardware PC ??
maybe i like sorfware more than hardware, some hardware device like cisco, juniper … with high price
thank you for helping me

I've got posts around here somewhere that say I hit a single-stream wall at ~2.4Gbit/s through my pfSense boxes w/ Intel X520 NICs. That was with 2.1.something though, not 2.2 which includes newer drivers and multi-threaded pf. I'd expect better there. With multiple connections I did better, I think 3.something Gbit/s but I can't remember. I'll redo my tests once 2.2 goes gold.
hi jason litka,
srr about my absent
could you hepl me this topo :https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=86714.0
