With a few rules like you, when I was opening many tab, or a big media website, my son was complaining about microlags on his video game.
Maybe you can add rules one by one...
But you should considering using personnal services based on port instead of l7 filter rules.
- two rules based on the video game port ("exemption" to ensure a good ping)
- only one rule based on the port I have fixed for utorrent (bulk)
- two rules based on "steam" game plateform port (express for the match)
- one rule based on the steam port for download (bulk)
And that's all... (the top rules on top for http 80 is something I'm trying to see if it speed up the process of parsing the rules. I'm not very sure. _________________ Buffalo WHR-G300Nv2 - BrainSlayer-V24-preSP2 - R21286
I'm not a big specialist, but I think it's related with the CPU of the routers.
As far as I understand, with l7 rules, the router needs to open headers to see if they matchs with a pattern with a regular expression.
Here: http://l7-filter.sourceforge.net/protocols on the speed paragraph, they give some hints about the performance of the l7 filters. And it seems that the bitorent filter is slow. _________________ Buffalo WHR-G300Nv2 - BrainSlayer-V24-preSP2 - R21286
