Speedtest-drop when pass through PA-5220

L3 Networker

Hi Expert , 


I would like to know today I have speedtest  and found  when test  client  that pass through speed drop for example  client A test speedtest  pass through firewall result down 500/mbit : up 900/mbit  but when client B Test Speed Direction pass throught Router  found result down 1000/mbit : up 1000/mbit     so, I doubt why when pass through PA is drop

Hi @Pattarachai,


Depending on which features you have enabled on your firewall your performance may vary considerably.


Cheers !



Shouldn't a PA5220 be able to handle 1 Gbit/s of traffic - even if you enable ALL available security features? (Assuming that only the speedtest runs at that moment)

That big a difference I would look for something physical, half-duplex port neg, mtu mismatch or physical port errors.

We actually see this a lot with how speedtest runs their tests. Utilize multiple speedtest applications such as the ones below and see if you see the same results. As @pulukas mentioned it'd also be a good idea to make sure that you don't have a duplex issue or something similar, that you may simply not notice under normal conditions.
