Something is fishy there. There is probably a lot of room for
optimization in your firewall rule set. I've had older versions of
OpenBSD (less efficient pf) on lesser hardware doing better throughput
than that. You ought to be able to squeeze a lot more out of the rule set.
Also for a firewall there is no reason you can't mount your OpenBSD
filesystems as read-only and extend the life of your CF media.
