Hello,

 

  Just have a couple of questions. The Barracuda F380 has the following specs:

•       3.8 Gbps Firewall Throughput

•       1.2 Gbps VPN Throughput

•       1.4 Gbps IPS Throughput

 

If I will enable its IPS feature, what will be my maximum firewall throughput? Is the firewall throughput measured when all the security features are turned on?

Hi Vincent,

 

Performance not only depends on feature set, but also on used release version and the kind of traffic.

 

For Barracuda NextGen Firewall F-Series Release Version 7.0:

  • FW throughput 3.8 Gbps -> measured with: Chassis throughput across multiple port pairs and large packets (MTU1500), UDP traffic
  • VPN throughput 1.2 Gbps -> measured with: AES-128, NOHASH and across multiple port pairs
  • IPS throughput 1.4 Gbps -> measured with: fast scan enabled, chassis throughput across multiple port pairs and large packets (MTU1500)

I guess you are looking for performance data for some kind of mixed traffic (RealWorld or IMIX), which is still not 100% your traffic but some indication for a productive environment. 

 

F380 has around 1.1 Gbps RealWorldIpsEnterprise traffic mix with FW, App-Detect, IPS, URL-Filter, AV+ATD.

Depending on your traffic mix and packet size +/- 20%.

 

Please note IPS also offers fast scan mode. (Go-to: Configuration tree > box > Infrastructure services > General firewall configuration > Configuration mode "switch to Advanced View" > Operational IPS > IPS scan mode)

Hi Dominik,

 

  Thanks for your reply. What I really want to know is if I will only enable its IPS feature how much bandwidth is left for other traffic? Is it approximately 3.8Gbps - 1.4 Gbps?

Hi Vincent,

sorry for the very late reply.

1.4 Gbps is messured with large packets. Thus, it will be around 1.1 Gbps under real conditions.

Hello All,

 

I checked Throughput at normal Daskboard is MB but only a few dozen times skyrocket to 3 to 4GB, so no way to check what services or users that are occupied bandwidth during this time?

 

Thanks,
