Hi, I'm working on that problem with Belgarath.

sysctl show the same for both systems.

pfSense is not pushing 10GBps even with pf disabled, so that i why I am confused.
pfctl -d has no impact on the throughput on the pfsense.

Hmm, pfctl -d will disable pf only until any change is made in the gui or the ruleset is reloaded which can be triggered by a number of things. However if will report it's already disabled if you run it again (and it is still disabled). You might try disabling it in the GUI in System > Advanced > Firewall/NAT to be sure.

It's interesting that neither box is running at 2201MHz which would be Turbo mode. But they are certainly comparable though with both set the same.

Hardware on both is identical, we disabled turbo mode in bios on both.
we made sure pf was disabled through the duration of the test but will check again with gui suggestion just to be sure.

I would recommend not using pfSense as a client or server for iperf as it does not reflect actual routing performance AT ALL. pfSense is configured to be good at routing not hosting. Both use the network but in completely different ways.

Try with both a client and server other than pfSense, but on different sides of the box. You'll probably have to open a firewall port for that.
