Odroid H2 -> Proxmox 7 -> pfSense VM -> limited speed

Post by gusto »

Does anyone use a similar configuration?

Code: Select all

GPON  --> modem bridge mode --> Odroid H2 --> Proxmox 7 --> pfSense VM  PPPoE--> LAN --> PCs 
With this topology, I achieve a download max of 500-600 Mbit.

Code: Select all

GPON  --> modem bridge mode  --> PCs
If I connect to the modem directly with a PC, I reach 800 Mbit

It's hard to say where the bottleneck is, but:

- if it's a H2+, make sure to install the drivers from realtek. One works best for gigabit, one for 2.5Gb, one for neither. Do iperf3 tests from proxmox to validate that the drivers work ok.
- do a packet capture and compare it to your PC traffic. Maybe there is a different MTU, or different queues...

It's H2 (no plus). The choice of the server on which the measurement is performed is very important. Today I measured 700 Mbit.
I also try iperf3.
thx

If you're using speedtest-cli, note that there are two versions. One is unofficial from sievel and is less accurate (especially for uploads) and one is from ookla.

There are two versions from ookla I believe, one is python based and one is a binary and works much better in my experience.

Hmm, that's quite some variability on your local lan. Not sure what causes it. If PFSense is a VM on top of proxmox, redo the iperf3 with the proxmox IP, just to rule out your LAN as a source of packet loss. Or do an iperf3 between proxmox and pfsense.
