currently, the gateway in my company is an old hp vectra pc w/pii-350
and 128m ram,
etc., and the internet connection is 100mbit/s fttb. it's running
freebsd 4.11 w/polling
and ipf 3.4.35, and some other stuffs like dhcpd, ntpd, and squid. 

i didn't make any benchmarks on it. the only thing i know is when i
transfer large files
using ftp, the average speed reported by ftp client is about 10.xx
MBytes/s. and during
the tansfer,  'top' on the gateway show me a very low cpu load, less then 5%. 

forgot to mention, the gateway has 3 fxps. in freebsd world, fxp is
considered the
best fast-ethernet nic. i used an xl once as my wan interface, and the
transfer speed
was about the same as fxp, but cpu load was very much higher. it's
about 50% when ftping.

yes, i'm not talking about m0n0, however, m0n0 is based on freebsd and
ipf, i think the data i mentioned here will also apply to m0n0 1.2b8,
if polling is enabled and you are using fxps

sorry for my poor english
