I upgrade to 7.0RC3 but still the same. 418Mbit is the roof.

Is recommendable set MPSAFENET to 1 in versions 6.x to improve the performance?
and POLLING in the following system with 8 interfaces IF_EM ??

CPU: Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 3.20GHz (3200.13-MHz 686-class CPU)
Logical CPUs per core: 2
FreeBSD/SMP: Multiprocessor System Detected: 2 CPUs
SMP: AP CPU #1 Launched!

Interfaces if_em:
  vendor     = 'Intel Corporation'
  device     = '82546EB Dual Port Gigabit Ethernet Controller'
