  1. All performance tests are based upon maximum memory configuration and base model port configuration (no port expansion). Throughput measurements are based upon maximum bidirectional traffic across all available ports.
  2. Basic Traffic (Primarily Data Download): iPerf3 traffic is TCP – 1460 byte payload and TCP framing.
  3. Complex Traffic (Voice, Data, Video): Simple IMIX traffic is sets of 7 (40) byte packets, (4) 576 byte packets, 1 (1500) byte packets, plus Ethernet framing overhead.
  4. XG-7100 performance number exceeds that of the XG-1537/41, as all tests were run by maximizing throughput across available base model physical ports (XG-7100 with 10 ports vs. XG-1537/41 with only 4 ports). The XG-1537/41 exceed the XG-7100 by per-port performance.
  5. SG-5100 with TNSR software (v20.02), configured with 1 CPU worker for iperf3 and IMIX traffic for IPsec performance tests.
  6. XG-1537 with TNSR software (v20.02), configured with 1 CPU worker for iperf3 traffic and 2 CPU workers for IMIX traffic for IPsec performance tests.
  7. XG-1541 with TNSR software (v20.02), configured with 1 CPU worker for iperf3 traffic and 2 CPU workers for IMIX traffic for IPsec performance tests.

pfSense Monitoring

pfSense Monitoring is our service offering to ensure uptime, performance, and functionality of your pfSense is as expected. It enable an early detection of potential issues before they become critical problems. Our monitoring agent keeps track of system resources such as CPU and memory usage. It also monitors network interfaces throughput and security parameters. Our standard ā€œITG monitoringā€ service checks on 100 metrics of your pfSense appliance or server. This is typically enough to monitor any Netgate appliance. Additional and custom monitoring can be developed upon request. Get in touch for further info.

About pfSense

What is pfSense?

pfSense is the world’s most trusted open source firewall. It brings together the most advanced technology available to make protecting a network easier and addresses a wide range of security and networking needs. pfSense is open source and you can download the Community Edition of pfSense here: https://www.pfsense.org/download/.

pfSense Community Edition can be installed on a physical computer or a virtual machine to make a dedicated pfSense firewall and/or pfSense router for a network. It is thoroughly documented ( pfSense documentation) and instructions are continuously updated on how to best operate pfSense software.

pfSense Plus is the version of pfSense that comes pre-installed on Netgate appliances which we sell in the UK at competitive prices.

Who uses pfSense?

Thousands of businesses, educational institutions, government agencies and non-profits – on all seven continents, and for years – have come to rely upon pfSenseĀ® software for their secure networking needs.

Why Buy a Netgate pfSense Appliance?

Netgate appliances are the official pfSense hardware running pfSense plus natively. In other words, Netgate devices are developed, designed and tested to run pfSense plus reliably. With Negate pfSense plus appliances business users can access commercial support directly from the team that host and develop the pfSense project.
