I'm seeing something on our firewall and switch that I don;t wuite understand. It's an intranet firewall that has slowed performance down between subnets.
If I look at bandwidth on the firewall, I can see normal traffic durng production at about 25kbits a second. If I initiate a file transfer of 100mb, I can see bandwidth usage jump another 25kbits, another 100mb transfer at the dame time and another 25kbits and so on.
What I cannot understand is why I can get beyond 25kbits a second under normal conditions. The bandwidth is available and the switch and router interface's load is nowhere near capacity.
I don't see any settings that would be limiting bandwidth? Can someone explain what I'm seeing here?
