The unit is set up with FortiOS 5.2.2 and has the wan1 port connected to the ISP with PPPoE (1Gb subscription).
If I connect the laptop or computer directly with PPPoE to the ISP I get ~800 Mb throughput (tested with speedtest, ISP's own speedtest and torrents). When I connect the Fortigate unit the throughput is capped at ~190 Mb (~140 with 5.2.5) and the unit stops responding (CPU 100%).
I tried the following configurations:
- internal lan in switch mode or in interface mode (hardware switch)
- tried with firmwares 5.0.10 and 5.2.1
The MTU for the PPPoE is 1492 so I also tried with mtu-overrride 1492 and still the same
The unit behaves the same in every situation high cpu and capped througput.
All the UTM features are turned off. All the tests are done with the basic configuration, just a policy from internal to wan1..
Also another strange thing is that when I test with the download limited ~100Mb so that the unit doesn't completely freeze I can see from the top command that the CPU is 50% hogged by the system, however there is no process in the list with that high of a load (if you add all the processes they add up to max 10%).
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated ..
I also noticed that the traffic is not going through the NP4Lite so I guess the 'Supports firewall acceleration across all packet sizes for maximum throughput' on the FGT 60D spec sheet on Fortinet website might be false advertising.
Update: There is no way that I found for a 60D to reach gigabit speeds on PPPoE connection. Max throughput is 140 Mb.
A workaround is to have another router in front of the 60D to do the PPPoe connection ( i got a Ubiquiti Edgemax Lite router for 100E that works amazing)
