10% - 15% Bandwith degradation - is that normal?

Post by ChAoS » Wed Jan 08, 2020 10:28 am

Hello,

I bridged two VPN servers together.
One is installed on a ubuntu VPS in the internet and the other side is at home - there I tested a Linux VM within oracle virtual box, an arm controller (Allwinner H3) and another (Allwinner H6 with gigabit interface).

My bandwiths:

VPS: 500mbit/s
Broadband connection at home: 59mbit down and 32.5mbit up.

When I measure speeds directly to the internet i also get the same results.
When I measure speeds through this tunnel I get 52 / 26 mbits.

Cause I tested some hardware and the CPUs were not heavily loaded my question is:
is that normal?
Are there speedup tips I can try?

Thanks

You can't be faster without going unsecure, which is no bueno. Only 15% decrease is the very best of modern VPN technology. Many are worse than that. Congratulations on having such excellent bandwidth on your VPN connection.
