Hardware / low throughput on Esxi 6.0 update 3
« on: March 03, 2018, 09:04:23 am »
I have pfsense running on my esxi host which is very powerful ( hpe dl380 gen9 2xcpu 2697 512gb ram) . I am on the latest version pfsense and open-vm tools. my problem is at best I get around 60MB/s throughput but without firewall my pc can use all 1Gb/s .
I have used vmxnet3 nics
I checked system -> activity and I see all of 8 core cpu(s) are utilized around 100%. What could be wrong? is there any known bug?

Hi, I'm running a lab to test pfsense as a firewall between vlans.
I have a esxi host connected with two cables to my cisco switch which the ports are trunk and encapsulation is dot1q. I have made an interface vlan on switch with ip and vlan 110.
In vcenter networking configuration I have made a portgroup with vlan id 110 and assigned this as lan of pfsense with ip address In another machine(pc-1) I added a network with the same portgroup and it can ping pfsense but in my switch I can't ping it.

another way that I tried is I assigned a portgroup with vlan id 4095 which is a trunk, then In pfsense I created a vlan 110 and set Lan to vmx0.110 . the result is the same. a machine with port-group 110 can ping it, but the switch can't.

To test my network infrastructure I halted pfsense machine and changed my pc-1 ip address to and now switch can ping it.

I don't what's wrong. Please help
