MX80 50% throughput

Hi,

 

Does anyone have experience with the MX80? 

We are having the issue that the throughput gets lowered by 50% compared to a direct connection with my macbook.

 

I saw that there are problems with this and that Meraki would fix it in an firmware upgrade, does anyone know about this?

 

Thank you.

If you are not in critical production enviroment yes, although from my experience beta is not a good thing to run in production, but for the sake of testing I would go for it yes ...

How many active users do you have behind your MX? Are you using all the Advanced Security Features? Content filtering, IDS/IPS?

Kind of a big deal

Re: MX80 50% throughput

The MX80 is getting a bit long in the tooth now.  When you connect your Mac Book directly what throughput do you get?

 

According to an old spec sheet I found the advanced security throughput should be 125Mb/s and it can support up to 100 users.

Are you sure you don't have any traffic shaping configured?

Re: MX80 50% throughput

Directly on the PPPOE network I get 98 Mb/s 

On the Meraki I get 48Mb/s 

 

All traffic Shaping not configured. 

 

Kind of a big deal

Re: MX80 50% throughput

Does the speed/duplex settings of the WAN port match the PPPoE device?

Try setting speed and duplex to static instead auto.

Kind of a big deal

Re: MX80 50% throughput

It doesn't need to be static - it just needs to be the same on both sides.
