All seems to be ok, try a netstat -I em0 -d  (it's a capital 'i') to 
get statistics. If too much packets are dropped recheck cables.

Other options:

a) 30 MB/s looks very strange, do you have pf or similar with a filter rule?
b) Have you checked your disk i/o performance?
c) If you generate the data dinamically, may be your producer app is 
the problem.

About the em specific problem under 8.2 you cite, others can guide 
better than me.
