I've been using this device for about a month now. Prior to installing it, I used intervlan routing between my subnets on my L3 switch. When I installed the Gold, I moved the routing over to the Firewalla in order to get most of the features to work correctly in routed mode.
My previous routing speeds were effectively wireline with no performance impact at L3 when initiating transfers between VLANs. I am getting ~650Mbps between VLAN's at best since installing the Firewalla, and have tested with dedicated ports per VLAN. I also noted that the CPU on the device, and system load goes to the max when initiating large transfers between VLANs.
I assume the performance hit is due to some inspection taking place when performing intervlan routing on the device, so I wondered if I should either be expecting better performance due to a misconfiguration or specific feature set, or if I can configure the interfaces to bypass inspection for internal routing, and I don't know how to do that.
Thanks for any assistance you can provide!
