It's not 16000 KBps unless you switched to gigabit somewhere.  That'd
be ~125 Mbps.

What does a tool like iperf give you between LAN and DMZ?  That takes
disk I/O out of the equation and gives you a better measure of true
maximum throughput capacity.

5.4 is certainly not known for having a speedy network stack, to say
the least.  What is the speed if you take the firewall out of the
equation?  (with iperf results, there may not be any need to try this,
though it wouldn't hurt)
