Ubiquity Edgerouter enable offloading to increase throughput

I was just reading about throughputs on the Edgerouter 4 and Lites and Ubiquity came back with this article on how to increase speeds/throughput on the Edgerouters:

https://help.ui.com/hc/en-us/articles/115006567467-EdgeRouter-Hardware-Offloading#:~:text=One%20of%20the%20most%20basic%20examples%20is%20IPv4,offloading%20enabled%2C%20the%20throughput%20will%20be%20about%20950Mbps.

For these Edgerouter Models: ER-X, ER10X, ER-X-SFP, EP-R6

Open terminal (ssh/putty) to router:

Then run these commands:

configure
set system offload hwnat enable
set system offload ipsec enable
commit ; save

For these Edgerouter Models: ER-LITE,ERP0E5,ER-8,EP-R8,ER-6P,ER-12,ER-12P,ER-8-XG

Open terminal

Then these commands:

configure

set system offload ipv4 forwarding enable

set system offload ipv4 gre enable

set system offload ipv4 pppoe enable

set system offload ipv4 vlan enable

set system offload ipv4 bonding enable

set system offload ipv6 forwarding enable

set system offload ipv6 pppoe enable

set system offload ipv6 vlan enable

set system offload ipsec enable

commit ; save

After doing so on either type of Router, reboot it to make the changes effective. 

For the ER-Lite, it’s supposed to increase from 300Mbps to 900Mbps throughput.  I call that a winner winner chicken dinner!
