3. Close bandwidth intensive programs. Network connections all have limited bandwidth. The amount yours has depends on the plan you chose from your internet service provider. If you are using more than your maximum bandwidth, your network latency will drop.
If your internet speeds turn out to be lower than what your service provider advertises, you will need to contact your provider and have them test internet latency from their end. Once the test is complete, the provider will then make the needed adjustments to ensure that your portion of the network is able to reach the advertised speeds.
Hence, I want to measure the firewall's latency when inspecting the payload. Assume I have a sender PC and a receiver PC. The firewall is connected in between. I can build a packet generator on the sender, and use wireshark installed on each PC to confirm whether the packet pass the firewall or not.
