Sophos XG Home Hardware limits
Considering the high internet connections already available to home users I think it would be important to at least increase the CPU's limit.
Currently is 4 threads, whichs is a problem because in most home installations the firewall is virtualized and this means that you can only use 2 cores (4 threads).
I think a limit of 8 threads would be fine. Right now the firewall with the IPS enable can hardly go above 300Mbps and I have 2 cores and 4 threads at 3.8 Mhz Zen2.
These hardware limits do NOT encourage community involvement and are based upon ancient specs that don't meet with hardware in 2020 or Internet connection speeds. Its a wonder I and many others don't use this 'home' edition.
In my believe, the only limit the Home License should be increased is RAM, to 8GB instead of 6GB.
A modern CPU such as G5400 can handle 850-900Mbit/s with IPS on a single core (Single Connection).
Also when your running virtualized, always use Cores instead of threads, doesn't matter if It's Hyper-V, ESXi or KVM. (Switch to 4 Cores in your setup.)
Any official comment about this? is important for the community to undestand where the home edition is going, to plan for the future. You don't change the firewall every day.
