Extremely slow Internet speeds

I'm getting about a 10th of the speed out of my new internet connection, we should be getting 1000mbps. We have swapped out media converters, and Fiber and also Ethernet patch cables. I went through 2 iperf tests with the ISP about a week apart. first test I was told it the ISPs fault and the second test the download speeds were as expected. Both of these tests were done between the media converter and my end device.  So I'm back looking at my setup trying to find the speed issue. My end device is an ASA 5512x and I have several switches behind it. Media converter->ASA->2960->7 other switches. I have been over and over auto speed and auto duplex.

Could it be a MTU sizing issue? maybe still an ISP mis configuration? I'm running out of things to try. Please help! Thank you

Re: Extremely slow Internet speeds

Sure. The one other thing I thought of is the line you shared that mentions QoS:

 

Output QoS rate exceeded (rate-exceeded)                                            99925

Do you have a QoS policy applied?

Re: Extremely slow Internet speeds

Are you inspecting the traffic with the Firepower service module?

Thank you for the response, but no we are not using IPS at this site.

Re: Extremely slow Internet speeds

I think you're on to something. It looks like the traffic is being policed


policy-map type inspect dns preset_dns_map
parameters
message-length maximum client auto
message-length maximum 512
no tcp-inspection
policy-map qos-class-policy
class udp-traffic-class
priority
class voice-class
priority
policy-map global_policy
class inspection_default
inspect dns preset_dns_map
inspect ftp
inspect rsh
inspect rtsp
inspect esmtp
inspect sqlnet
inspect skinny
inspect sunrpc
inspect xdmcp
inspect sip
inspect netbios
inspect tftp
inspect ip-options
class class-default
user-statistics accounting
policy-map qos-outside-policy
class class-default
police output 99614500
!
service-policy global_policy global
service-policy qos-outside-policy interface outside

 

I just removed the line "service-policy qos-outside-policy interface outside" and speeds are better, but its off and on right now. ran 3 speed tests one at 100mbps another at 820mbps and the last one back down to 157mbps

 

(this is an old config that most likely needs to be wiped and reconfigured at some point)

Re: Extremely slow Internet speeds

Thank you, Marvin

I think that solved it. its slightly all over the place right now, but that is probably due to this speed test not being 100% accurate and also everyone being on it at once.

Re: Extremely slow Internet speeds

You’re welcome. I’m glad that fixed it.

 

Plus now you know that the traffic policer works just fine. 

 

Thanks for rating.
