I opened a case with pfsense paid support, the developers are working on the problem.

Why not use Virtual machines ?

It works very well!

What is status now?  :)

I need at least 5 Gbps throughput, I was not able to get that on ESXi VM. I have not tried xen or kvm though...

I think I do not understand. I have a physical machine with one 10 Gbit card that should host my firewall (physical or virtual, preferably pfsense) and handle heavy traffic over several VLANs via this card. How can teaming help me in this case?

Most run the dual cards when buying them to loadbalance the traffic :)

I thought you had the same.

Do you run real life traffic with 5gbit on the machine? Or did you do an Iperf test?

Yes, we have x520 dual-port card, but no load-balancing, one port faces upstream, multiple VLANs on second port serve local networks.
Yes, we have real 5Gbit traffic that is now bypassing the firewall.

I would like to run 1 physical box and second as virtual. Redundant setup.  :)

I run 2 vmware esxi servers with 2 pfsense firewalls. it's transfer around 7Gb/s real traffic, 132 VLANs and ~160 Subnets. it's work without any problems. i think that we should use this setup until developers will fix ixgbe driver problem.

firewall is updated. after boot MBUF status is 32% (165510/512000)  in server with 4 ixgbe NICs and 2 igb NICs. looks little bit high for system after boot. there is no traffic thru this FW and in 20 min MBUF count raised to 166406. so looks like the problem of MBUFs is not fixed
