I've seen a few threads over the years about slow throughput when connected with the Pulse client, and none of the suggestions seem to help. So my question is: does anyone know whether there's a particular DEFAULT behavior parsing out bandwidth to a single user when VPN bandwidth management is NOT enabled?
The Pulse graphs suggest that the box's aggregate throughput is never really exceeding spikes of 20Meg, even though the box is connected at 10gig to its next hop, and is communicating across 10gig or faster links all the way to our ISP. But when I attempt to do anything through it, it's much slower that I expect. Tests to speedtest.net give results ranging from 50 to 350 Mbps, depending on the profile. I chose ESP instead of SSL for a test profile and got pretty consistent 150 Mbps results, so it may have made the worst-case a bit better. But still nowhere near the 940 Mbps average to speedtest.net when I'm just using a wired connection.
I've got a similar issue. A user will perform a speed test when off the VPN showing an expected result for their level of broadband service, but when they are connected to the PCS they might have 1/10th of the up/down rates. We're not applying any bandwidth management either.
