Well, for m0n0wall, I can put it on a Soekris NET4801 with a 266MHz
processor and the processor usually idles at 0-3% and response from the
web administration is quite fast. Though, with pfsense, the CPU is
constantly at 100%, and web response is much slower, so I assume one
would need a more powerful processor for pfsense. For me, m0n0wall +
edward's hack for transparent proxying did the trick and I gave up on
pfsense. So it really depends if you need those extra features provided
by pfsense (ie. SSH, plugins, etc...).
