Bandwidth Limitation on DMVPN tunnel interfaces

So in our DMVPN network, we have this Cisco 3845 hub router that is connected via a DS3 to the Internet, and our spoke sites usually have a broadband connection that typically have a maximum of 1Mbps upload capacity. We are getting ready to add a few more sites to our network that are connected to the Internet with 10Mbps upload speeds (and 50Mbps download). Spoke site routers are usually 800 series ISRs. We have seen spikes of 8-10Mbps on the hub router so far. So the question is that a site with 10Mbps upload speed transmit to the full capacity over a DMVPN tunnel or is it limited by other factors? What are those factors?

One major factor would be the particular 800 series model you're using.  Not all can push even 10 Mbps.

Another major factor would be crypto performance and whether you've optimized the DMVPN for optimal transfer rate (such as avoiding fragmentation).

10 Mbps using 800 series?  The only one that will fit this would be the 890.  You have to be darn careful you will not be increasing the bandwidth.  The 890 can support up to 51.20 Mbps in un-encrypted and half duplex speed.  For full duplex and full encryption, the true value would be around 12 to 15 Mbps.

Thank you both. So is there a Cisco document referencing these limits?
