I have three VLANs at home and a Firewalla Gold. I am using Advanced Simple Mode to connect three VLANS from a dedicated switch port to the Gold box.
I just found something interesting by monitoring network bandwidth Gold has to process. I found Gold network traffic is actually twice as much as my actual network activity, using cockpit. For example performing a speed test on my device getting 300 mbps, on Gold I actually see 600 mbps, assuming this is counted as 300 mbps inbound to Gold and 300 mbps outbound to the device.
So my question is that, for the 3 Gbps DPI throughput, how is it counted? Can I assume that 3 Gbps is only for Gold inbound traffic?
