Improving Untangle performance

Our in-depth Performance Guide goes into great detail about the factors that affect your Untangle's performance, but this guide gives you some quick suggestions that can help.

  1. Uninstall Intrusion Prevention (especially if you have no blocking rules enabled).
  2. Uninstall Virus Blocker Lite (especially if you are using the full version of Virus Blocker).
  3. Uninstall Spam Blocker & Phish Blocker if you do not have an on-premise email server.
  4. Uninstall the Firewall application if you have not configured any rules.
  5. Uninstall Web Cache unless your connection is pay-per-megabyte or slower than 5 Mbps.
  6. Uninstall any applications which are installed but not running.
  7. Disable extraneous logging in Config > Network > Advanced (the last four options).
  8. Disable remote syslog in Config > Events > Syslog (if you have it running), or configure rules to only send required data instead of the default which sends everything.
  9. Bypass devices which don't need to be filtered or processed (such as VOIP phones or networked printers).
