WAF throughput

waf throughput

Best Answer aravindan a, 27 April 2017 - 04:06 AM

The throughput number mentioned is a relative number thats probably conservative to account for all types of real world scenarios. We perform stress testing on all the models by turning on the security features. Normally the numbers are reduced by 20-30% before they are published. Turning on load balancing feature should not have any impact on the throughput of other performance metrics. So please feel free.

We have a WAF 460, with a given throughput of 50 Mbps. Is this the real maximum in any case or the maximum if all security features are enabled?

 

And if i add a service wihtout any security feature enabled - just to use the load balancing - does this service minimizing my overall throughput?

 

thanks in advance.

Markus
