I realize that that encrypted traffic is not processed the same as unencrypted without SSL inspection enabled, but assuming the connections are still tracked, is is possible to get at least approximate traffic statistics for encrypted traffic?

 

As in, now that Netflix is encrypted, it doesn't even show on the dashboard under top sites though it is by far my highest bandwidth usage.

Any chance this is the fix in firmware 12?

Sadly, it is not included in firmware 12.

 

Please consider this--all stats based on bandwidth are useless without counting https traffic.

Considering that fact why not enable SSL inspection? Recent statistics report that HTTPS traffic is now over 50%, without performing SSL inspection you are opening a large blind spot in your visibility of network traffic. The item you mention BNYF-12741 relates to a QAT driver issue. This is specific to models with SSL decryption hardware. Are you sure this is the correct item you are referring to?

 

Is your request to be able to report on SSL traffic without the use of SSL inspection?

Ben this "When the SSL Inspection feature is set to Off, Dashboard performance statistics display as expected. [BNYF-12741]" is from our release notes

Yes Ben, my request is to be able to report on SSL traffic without the use of SSL inspection.  I realize I'm blind to a lot without decrypting the traffic, but we've made the decision not to at this point.
