2. From Jim I would like to thank my wife and son, who put up with me throughout my participation in the writing process. Without them, I would have gone crazy a long time ago. I would also like to thank my boss, Rick Yaney of HPC Internet Services, for being supportive of pfSense, FreeBSD, and Open Source software in general. The entire pfSense community is deserving of even more thanks as well, it is the best and most supportive group of Open Source software users and contributors I have ever encountered.
The project ran for a couple months with no name. In fact, the FreeBSD jail that runs our CVS server is still called projectx. Scott and Chris were the only two members of the project at the time, as its founders. We ran through numerous possibilities, with the primary difficulty being finding something with domain names available. Scott came up with pfSense, pf being the packet filtering software used, as in making sense of PF. Chris' response was less than enthusiastic. But after a couple weeks with no better options, we went with it.
Note In environments requiring more than 3 Gbps of sustained throughput, or more than 500,000 packets per second, no router based on commodity hardware offers adequate performance. Such environments need to deploy layer 3 switches (routing done in hardware by the switch) or high end ASIC-based routers. As commodity hardware increases in performance, and general purpose operating systems like FreeBSD improve packet processing capabilities in line with what new hardware capabilities can support, scalability will continue to improve with time.
