Limiter Throughput
« on: June 17, 2012, 02:45:38 pm »
I've setup a limiter rule with 2 pipes (upload and download) which works great if the limits are set below 30Mb. When I increase the download pipe to 30Mb or greater I hit a max download of around 40Mb even if I set the limiter to 70Mb. Disable the rule and my speed jumps back to 75Mb (ISP limit).

I've had this fully working with mono but I like all the extra features of pfsense. Tested with 2.0.1 and 2.1. (Via Envy 1500Mhz / 512MB)

Any ideas about what is limiting the limiter?

I have a somewhat similar problem.. although not at that high speeds. My isp gives me 50/50 atm, and disabling the limiter i get 49/46 (atleast on the isp bandwidth meter). I have set the limiter to 48/48, but when i do that, i get 44-46/36-38.

Ofc the download limit should be around that i guess.. but why almost 10 mbps less on the upload with the limiter running? Would the purpose of the limiter be kinda waste if i put the speeds more than i actually have? (i would think so.. but just asking)

Also tested this with 2.0.1 and 2.1 beta.

Oh, and im running PriQ setup, as i find this the easiest to manage.
