pfSense throughput spikes

Hello ArcTechNerd here,

I’m quite new here, but I’ve been following L1Techs on YouTube for a long time. I couldn’t think of a single place to post otherwise to get the assistance I was looking for. I’ve been using a custom built pfSense router for the last 3 years, and since I finally got around to buying a proper set up for it, but since then I’ve been getting random throughput spikes on my monitoring software.

(As seen here) You can see that the spikes are not happening on the pings going to the router, but only going through. I’m wondering if the hardware I purchased is the issue, or if it’s an issue with the pfSense system itself.

Willing to provide any information necessary to continue my troubleshooting.
I’ve followed all the steps that the pfSense troubleshooting website..
I’m hoping now that you may be able to help me get further. :slight_smile:

EDIT: I forgot to mention the hardware I’m using, I apologize for that. I purchased this SoC motherboard.

EDIT2: I also seem to believe that a 0.2-0.4 MS ping to my router is adequate, I can’t imagine getting better without upgrading my layer 1 infrastructure.
