My CPU stayed at about 25% with an average DL speed of 1.5 Mbps on
Monowall's traffic Graph, assuming I've done the test procedure correctly.

Subject: 1.2b5+ BitTorrent problem
Seems that any of the 5.3-based betas have an issue with handling huge
numbers of packets. BitTorrent is one easy way to replicate the
With a 4501 and 1.2b7, downloading about 400 KBps and uploading 2-3
KBps on BitTorrent pegs the CPU on m0n0wall at 100%. With 1.2b3 and
earlier I used BT without any issues.
To replicate, get any BT client and download a torrent like:
Azureus seemed to be the worst, pegging it at 100% all the time. ABC
client kept it around 96-100%, still way higher than it should be for
that amount of traffic. Was steadily 390-410 KBps down and 2-3 KBps
up on both.
(all throughput numbers in B, bytes)
Can anyone else confirm or deny?
