Subject: How to improve Wireguard speed?
Date: Wed, 1 Jun 2022 08:42:44 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


I'm compiling the latest stable Wireguard on Debian 11.

git clone
make -C wireguard-tools/src -j$(nproc)
sudo make -C wireguard-tools/src install

However the speed is not that impressive.  I have a VPS with 4 vCores
and 8 GB RAM on 1 Gbps network.  The VPS is located in London and so
am I.

With wireguard enabled I get 117 Mbps
Without wireguard I get 506 Mbps

That's a drop of 75%. What are the factors to improve the download rate?

Thank you,
