Do disabled firewall / NAT rules affect performance?

Sun Mar 20, 2016 7:48 pm

Like in question. Do disabled entries in NAT / firewall filter and other lists affect performance? I have plenty of disabled firewall rules which were default or used in previous setup "just in case" and I'm not sure if they don't slow things down.

Do you notice any performance problems of firewall? If yes, remove them and recheck. But I doubt it has significant impact although I haven't tested it.
