ASA 5540 + IPS limiting outbound traffic

We have a ASA 5540 + IPS installed here. Unfortunately the guy that installed left without leaving any documentation so I'm a bit lost with this.

We have a 100Mbps FD link to the Internet. The inbound traffic (from the Internet) shows no limit (I can download a DVD iso file at 20MMbps) but the outbound traffic never goes beyond 100-150kbps (from our FTP server, for example).

In between our FTP server (or any other server) and the Internet there is only one 3750 switch and the ASA. Every connection is done at 1Gbps (except for the connection to the Internet that is made at 100Mbps FD).

Thanks in advance for your attention

If you are checking the ftp from internal netwirk maybe the request is getting internally diverted via a different path to the ftp server and this is why you are facing the problem. Try by downloading from an outside network because as such there is no traffic limiting done by ASA.
