Limiters do not function properly on 2.5 snapshots
Discussion here: https://forum.netgate.com/topic/145091/quick-question-about-limiters
I think there is a bug in limiters...
When I create limiters and set floating firewall rules for WAN interface, all traffic from all LANs stops working. If I create floating rules
with same limiters for LAN interfaces, everything works.
I was following forum discussion samples and tutorials, YouTube videos etc... Limiters were set up properly and floating rules as well.
With limiter on LAN ifaces all traffic on LAN iface is limited to 80 Mbit/s which is OK.
But when I start to download torrent for example, LAN stays at 80 Mbit/s but WAN goes above 80 and eventually reaches 90 Mbit/s.
There is no other sources of traffic just torrents. One WAN and 2 LAN.

Because of problem #2, I was trying to limit WAN iface instead of LAN to avoid this issue but when I did that, it blocked all traffic completely.
Pfsense is on Hyper-V.
Using latest snapshot as of today.
We can continue on forums to avoid spamming here, but I think something is not quite right with limiters on 2.5.0 snaps.
I restored config on 2.4.4-p3 and this are working just fine there.
I believe this on is related to https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/8954#change-41002 .

Experiencing same behavior as reported by Greg M on my physical install of pfsense 2.5 dev. Traffic just stops.
Followed the instructions from 2.4.4 here (from a pfsense Short Topic vid, first topic): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8nL81DzTlU&t=380 No dice.
Meantime, I disabled the floating rule for now, and I try again every few weeks...no change in behavior since I first tried back at the start of Jan 2020.
Any news? Thanks, in advance. Love your software otherwise! Gorgeous, powerful, versatile!
